Erica, don't know how I missed this review--your top is fabulous, the color so spring-like (which we're still waiting for up here in RI.) Just noticed this pattern in the book and based on your gorgeous top, I'll have to get it!!

Erica, you've done it again!! That colour is so hot this year. Just p/u pattern. Impeccable! Thanks for the review.

I love your use of grosgrain - really cute top. Enjoy!

Too pretty! Love the color and the ribbon. I agree about your selection of zipper. Everything came together well.

Thanks for reviewing this top. I've had my eye on this pattern and wanted to see what it would look like when a PR member made it. You've done a beautiful job on your blouse and what an eye-catching color!

Difficult fabric, but nary a pucker in sight. :o) Beautiful finish and fantastic fabric!

Beautiful top! I wish I could put in zippers as good as you did!! I love your choice of the ribbon ties. Great job!

Erica - this looks great and yellow is one of my favorite colors! I just picked up this pattern because I liked the top because of the pleats at the neckline. I've never used stretch charmeuse but I may be tempted to look for it after seeing your top :-)

Love it! I picked up the pattern today - thanks for the review!

What a fabulous shell and a gorgeous color...I bet that yellow looks great on you! I would've overlooked this pattern if not for your review...thanks, Erica!

Difficult stretch charmeuse and yet you've gotten pristine finishes. Very exciting color and I'm enchanted by the princess seams that curve inward towards the neck detail. Extremely flattering and feminine. This is quite a beauty! -Lily

Gorgeous top - and you found grosgrain ribbon to match?

Thanks for the review! This pattern has practically been begging me to sew it the past week or two, and your version is a great inspiration! Beautiful as always...

You do an awesome invisible zipper! Any tips on getting it so smooth and absolutely even at the top on each side?

Great top, love the lines, gorgeous colour too!!

Hey - this looks great! Have you seen the J. Crew charmeuse shell that looks just like this and retails for> $80? I am totally going to knock it off after seeing your success with this pattern! And the color is stunning!

I love this color and the simple lines in this top!

What a gorgeous top. Those pleats at the neckline are so hot right now!

Just gorgeous! I was debating about this one (you know, "Do I really *need* another pattern?"), but you've made up my mind.

That's gorgeous! I just got this pattern and am glad to hear that it worked well for you.

That's a winner. I never would have looked twice at this pattern, but I love what you've done with it.

Love the yellow! Me too, big Tory Burch fan here.

What a great little shirt to wear with jeans or a skirt. Love your color and fabric choice, and thanks for the heads-up about removing the ease.

Very pretty, beautiful color. The ties in the side seams - great idea.

Thanks for review this fabulous top which a few of us spotted under your nubuck jacket. Totally agree about the colour. don't you find the fabrics that just sneakly catch your eey e are the ones that youmust have and become some of your all time favs? witht eh concealed zipper and the grossgrain rib detail this is a very classy top! edit just checke dout the pattern , you certainlyhave an eye for the patterns, I would never never have given this a 2nd look. Tho love the dress fabric on the model too. Tho i am usually a plain girl.

I love it, and the colour is so perfect and cheery for Spring! I didn't even know there was such a thing as stretch charmeuse... interesting.
