I had just bought the pattern and read the same unfavorable reviews you did -- I'm glad you made yours b/c I will probably give mine a shot, too. The pink linen is totally spring and your finished garment looks great!

Your fabric is gorgeous. The simple style you chose really shows it off.

It looks great and I love the color. I'm glad you found success with this pattern. I bought this one a few weeks ago because I simply adore Tory Burch. I plan to make one also.

marlesmom, I am so happy to read your review. I am finishing my tunic today. I read the other reviews after buying that pattern. Was I ever sad learn that the pattern I just bought was NOT recommended ! I deceided on cutting it anyway. I like your version very much. The color and fabric is an excellent choice. It goes really well with your complexion. Kudos for that beautiful, beautiful tunic.

This linen top looks really good. I especially noticed right away in the photo how good the sleeves looked - the bias cut must make a difference.

Ohh your piping looks great! It has a very smooth look overall; then I read you cut the sleeves on the bias. Sweet!

Looks like it would be comfortable to wear yet at the same time it looks a little dressy. The piping is a nice detail.

I think you made the perfect fabric choice for your top. It's gorgeous. And cutting your sleeves on the bias? Great idea! I just added this pattern to my want list.

I like your tunic a great deal. The solid color pastel approach lends it an air of sophistication. You did a good job on construction as well.
