My first reaction to your phots was to wonder how you managed to get such a perfect match on your trims.....then I read your review and found out! How very clever of you......I will try and hold onto that idea for my "bag of tricks".

I like the trim which makes this simple top very elegant. Good job on embellishing the ribbon.

The trim makes the top look like it is from a boutique...and it is...Lauralo's. Great Job.

Cute top! I saw this top in the magazine, but it didn't pop out at me. I like what you did with your version.

Your work is always lovely. I know when I see one of your reviews listed, the details you've added will make it worth the read.

oops, I put my comments in the skirt review. You did a lovely job on this top and I love the creative embellishment. The top and skirt look like they're great together. Thanks for a terrific review.

Thanks for your comments, I'm pretty proud of my home-made trim myself! [blush] Linda G, the binding is pre-folded satin bias, the brand is unknown, and I'm buying it in notion shops here in Romania. I visit several notion shops, sometimes I find plenty of nice things, sometimes nothing at all. Therefore everytime I find something that I like, i buy some, I will surely use it at some point, even if it's in 5 years (like the variegated thread).

Wow! This top looks fabulous with the home-made ribbon. I never thought of using those decorative machine stitches for that. You have inspired me.

That is adorable. I am curious about your bias binding, what is the fabric, brand and where do you get it???
