Well, I can't believe what a difference that tie makes! This looks SO nice on you, and the color is very flattering, as well! Good idea, starching that fabric. I would have never thought of that.

I love this top - the colour on you, the style. It looks great and one I am going to try.

I agree that the tie enhances an already great-looking top. The lovely color looks fantastic on you.

I've been afraid to work with sheers so I will take the 'starch the heck out of it' to heart! Looks cute and I like the tie!

This is so pretty! Using spray starch is a great idea. This fits you perfectly and looks so nice.

Pretty top. Thanks for the links so we can see the different looks. I like starching difficult fabrics, too.

I THOUGHT this top looked familiar... ;) GREAT top, Nancy! I want to have yours now. I wish we were neighbors and could trade. Thanks for the starch tip-- I'm going to try it!

Yes, that's exactly what I did. I mix my own starch from liquid a lot of the time, but this time I happened to see some Niagra "heavy" in the store. It really makes it stiff.

I like the idea of starching the fabric. Do you use a spray starch after laying the pattern on the cut piece?
