Thank you for your detailed review. I have this top and I'm saving your review for future reference. Your versions look gorgeous, on both of you. Great job matching up to O's. Your daughter's beautiful big eyes make two more O's.

This is a VERY helpful review. Thank you so much. I've been wanting to find a cross-over top that doesn't end up being too low. This one looks pretty modest! I've marked it on my favorites list. You both look fantastic!

You two "O"s look wonderful in your tops! Love this pattern. Love your rendition! Nice fabric! Thanks for the link to Dr. Sue's note about the sway back fix on page 127 of Fit For Real People. Very Helpful! I always shorten my neck bands for modesty.

Wonderful review that covers all aspects of this tempting top. You and Heather look smashingly chic in your tops. Your fabric choice is stunning, too, as is your ability to sew 7 garments in a weekend! I bow to greatness. - Lily

Both you and your daughter look fabulous in these tops! The fabric certainly gives them an added 'wow' factor. Great work. I love how you've been able to whip up 7 outfits in a weekend! Fantastic!

Awesome!!! Mom and daughter look terrific in their new tops! And a great fit too. How did I ever miss your David Cassidy shirt? Now I'm going to check out that review.

You two look adorable! Don't you think she's more likely to sew if she can look just like Mom? Sure worked for me :-).

Love, love, LOVE it -- or should I say "them." BOTH of you are just as cute as you can be in these tops. Your fabric is so fun, and the fit is superb! :o) You know, I've got a whole drawer full of Jalie patterns that I've yet to try out. I don't know what the heck I'm waiting for.

Louella, I'm so pleased that you remade this fabulous Jalie top, as your previous top looked so beautiful on you. And this sibling in softer autumn colors is quite the complement. The fit is so flattering to you and as always, your colors choices are killer chic. I'm pretty sure that your wardrobe could accommodate a few more of this caliber. Lovely, Lily

New version looks great! Also, I'm so jealous that it is warm there. Looking at the picture made me wish Chicago would stop snowing!

There you go again, Awesome top and a great review you and Heather look so darn cute together!! I've taken the plunge and bought fabric and patterns for ME...OMG! From little stuff to giant patterns ewwwwwww, I don't know where to begin. Now, I'm not that big, but I much prefer working with little people patterns; it's just that I have nothing to wear in this horrible heat!
