Wow, you have done a fantastic job. I was looking at that fabric at EOS yesterday but couldn't justify the price together with the international postage. Love it!

WOW! Your use of the fabric design on this top is VERY nice. It fits you PERFECTLY, and you have the PERFECT figure for it, as well. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Move over DVF. :o)

Wonderful! You look 'marvelous' and considering the cost of DVF clothing, its a bargain and looks very like the original.

Fabulous top! Your fabric is so cool...a better choice than DVF. I like this use of the pattern bettern than just using it as a dress!

wow, thanks everyone! Makes me feel good about all the time I spent. :-) Nancy-this top retails for $210, so this is a bargain in my opinion too.

Gorgeous! You need to spend the virtual savings on fabric to make more of these! And how great is it to have a sloper for your next knit tops?

OMG! That's gorgeous. What is it with ladies here named Leslie who make gorgeous clothes, AND have bodies to show them to the best advantage. I'm really jealous!

Beautiful top! The print is soft and feminine, and it looks great without the collar too!

Worth all your difficulties to get results like this! Fabulous.

Lovely lovely lovely!! I didn't realize when I saw you wearing your first version that it was a jersey. For some reason I thought it was georgette, so I've spent the month since PR weekend searching fruitlessly for the wrong fabric with which to shamelessly copy your perfect blouse. (I'm telling you girls, when we were all walking to dinner together, I literally watched men's heads snap around to stare helplessly at how great she looked in this blouse.) Clearly #2 will elicit the same response.

I need to just buy this pattern. This blouse is tremendous. You have an amazing eye for getting what you want from a pattern and print.

Beautiful top. I have this pattern near the top of my pile - making it as a top is a wonderful option to get the fit worked out. Thanks for a great review and tips.

Stunningly beautiful top, loohoo, that was made even more special by each change you instituted/executed. Needless to say, your fabric is show stopping, your fit is perfect, and the end result is quite mouth watering. Lovely, lovely, Lily
