That's a great review. I love the way the bargain made you so happy. I guess we all love Joann's bargain bin!

Wow! I love your version. The pattern never called out to me, but your top is fab! It should be on the pattern cover.

Oh! I was also thinking about this pattern today and realize that we can solve the bra strap/no-strap issue. Because the fabric is rather loose where the shoulders cross in front of the bodice top, it would be easy to add a snap at the corner to hid a bra strap if you don't wear strapless. And thanks for all your great comments!

Looks great on you. It's interesting to see it with short sleeves. I just made the pattern also and will publish my review shortly. I share your enthusiasm for the pattern.

looks lovely, I bought a RTW jersy dress with a similar bodice, although it was a surplice princess wrap and empire seamed if that makes sense. I am very tempted to buy this pattern and turn it into a dress.

That top does look better that on the envelope love it! It is going to make a gorgeous dress. Add a belt, and you'll have a knit version of the Mouret Galaxy dress. Had no idea that the Today's Fit patterns would look so fabulous!

That is an awesome top! I wish I would have cut mine a size B like you - maybe I will just bite the bullet and buy another pattern. I love that print too - va va voom! :-)

Your top looks great! You've solved my sizing dilemma - I'd been debating if I needed to go up a size since some reviewers said it was too small, but I think I'll go with the recommended size.

Love it! I always check the remnant bin at Joann's - I've made a few tees and a few pencil skirts out remnants. Aren't you glad you picked this one up? It works great in this top and the top looks great on you
