Thanks. I am now encouraged to try this after reading the difficulties others had. I love Diane's designs. Thanks

For the first top I used a cream colored linen cotton blend and the lining is a paisley patterned quilting cotton in red/brown/beige/cream. The fabric is firm. For the second top I used a small patterned black/cream/rust cotton, no lining, but black bias edging. Not a firm fabric, but the result is as pleasing as the first one. I have just ordered Dragonfly and Torii, and I am looking forward to try them.

Thanks for the review; my results (see my review of the same pattern) were not so successful - but I think that firmer fabric may be the key. This has given me the incentive to seek out some new interesting fabric (!!) and try this pattern again. Lisa B, check out Dragonfly by the same company; like Peony there are lots of design ideas and it's really cute.

Very nice lines; unique. What color(s) did you use? I'd like to be able to visualize it. Have you made any other of their patterns? Thanks for introducing this company to me.
