Very flattering fit, and a beautiful fabric, too. I started to read some articles on the hand-picked zipper method, it sounds like it provides ultimate control in the placement of the zipper. Thanks for very informative review.

This is a very pretty top, the fabric is lovely, thanks for the tip on making a baby hem.

Nancy, I am very close to sewing a hand picked zipper with the silk that I picked up on the PR weekend. I am so heartened to hear yours worked well. Your top looks great!

How PRETTY. I can see why you were drawn to this fabric. I love examining all your pictures, and I'm bookmarking this one for your tutorials on baby hems and hand-picked zippers. I've done the zippers before, but would have never thought of yours and Sherry's. Great review and great top!

Love your top. And congratulations on being the first to use the LA fabric (I think). Yes, it certainly looks like you nailed the fit- congrats on that too!! It was lovely chatting with you, hope to see you in the near future.

Great style and great fit. If you lengthened the hem, it would make the perfect summer dress for you.

Your top is more enticing than NL's! Very nice job, Nancy!

Sewn up your LA fabric already? You are amazing when it comes to getting projects done. It's a cute top and too bad your hand picked zipper wasn't necessary. Luckily it's probably easier to pick out if you choose to eliminate it.

I had not even noticed this view. I got this for my daughter a while back for the sleeved version(never did it). I love your top - it is awesome.

You made a lovely top. I'm adding this pattern to my shopping list for my summer wardrobe

Your top looks great in this print. I too have this pattern and didn't need the zip. Like you I see more to come.
