Beautiful tops and dress - I can see why you like it so much. And it looks great on you, too! I have sewn one top up, but I now MUST sew more since I have seen your beautiful versions - especially the dress!

Love each version you've made.

I love this new version. This pattern was made for you. The black fabric is really nice on you.

Your dress looks great on you. I have this pattern but haven't used it yet. I should start working on it because it's extremely flattering.

I love the top turned into the dress. Great summer style.

I love both the top and the dress, great review as always. Pattern is now on my wish list

Both the top and the dress look great on you! Congratulations on hitting the 200 reviews mark too!

This is such a great idea to transform it into a dress. Great top, lovely dress. Thank you for the inspiration.

Super top and great looking dress, Lisa!

You're a mindreader. I'm tracing today, morphing this top onto an old Vogue Elements pattern to turn it into a dress. I was just about to say "oh, forget it", when I noticed your update. The dress looks great: just the incentive I needed to get me back to tracing.

Lisa, I know you made this top last month but I just saw it today. Wow! Great top. You look fantastic in this pattern.

Very flattering top.

You look so good in that top. Why haven't I bought this yet?

Wow- this does look extremely flattering. Sold on this one.

Very, very nice top. It looks great on you. Don't we all want something that makes us look like we've lost weight. Thanks for the review.

Very beautiful top. You look slim, trim and shapely, and I love the fabric, too, which really showcases the lines of the top. Yes, make many more. Lovely, Lily

Your top looks fantastic, Lisa. You can't beat a "Have you lot weight?" comment. I'd be whipping out a dozen of those puppies. Great review.

I can't put my finger on whether it is the colour, style or combination that does it with this top, but, holy moly it DOES IT. Very, very nice!

Love it! Wishlisted it. Love the fabric. Thanks for the clear elastic tip. I knew I bought some of that stuff for a good reason!
Peggy L said... (3/17/08 9:43 AM) Reply
Sold! The top looks great on you. I've loved all the reviews on this and need to add this one to my stash.
Marji said... (3/17/08 8:44 AM) Reply
All right, I'm sold on it. Great top.
Debbie Cook said... (3/17/08 7:38 AM) Reply
Great top on you!

Great top, Lisa! You can raise the neckline on really stretchy fabric with no problems. I made one out of ribbing that didn't have enough stretch and it wouldn't go over my daughter's head. I'd like to try the zippered version for this reason.

I love this top, such a great basic. It looks beautiful on you
Annette1 said... (3/17/08 1:12 AM) Reply
WOW, thus is SO pretty on you! I love that neckline, and the top fits you live a glove.
Athene said... (3/17/08 0:57 AM) Reply
You look hot in this top Lisa. I have read many of your reviews and you always look good in the clothes you make but in this picture I thought you looked like you had lost 10 or 15 pounds. I have this pattern I don't know what I'm waiting for - I should be making it. Thanks for the great review.

Lisa, this is a real winner on you! Very, very flattering. Must pull it out and give it a try. Thanks for a great review :-) Sue

Love this top on you Lisa Laree!! You have been such a wonderful encouraging influence for me with your reviews! Thank you! Another winner. I love the depth of this neckline when I wear it! Narrow but deep--sexy--and you can change easily how deep you want to make it. Thanks again! Carla

There is a reason that this top keeps getting on the Top 10 list. It looks great on you and 'it feels good to wear'. Great review!
JEF said... (3/16/08 10:32 PM) Reply
Absolutely fantastic. That is a beautiful top. I'm now adding this pattern to my wish list!
