I've been out of it for a while and your's is the first review I've looked at upon returning. I'm so inspired - you've created a beautiful wardrobe. Bon Voyage!!!

I too was very happy to sew this after other people reviewed it. I love your version and the tip on using a band at the top to the camisole. I have to make another one! It is so cut in a print and the solution of sewing the tie ends together is a good one. I am keeping track of changes for my second one. Enjoy Paris. I have been there in November, and May is a much better time to go.

That is sooooo beautiful ~ what a great fabric choice! I'm glad you got the sleeves to fit better, I need to fix my sleeve piece for my next top, it's definitely too high as is.

" clear that I didn't understand them..." Great, now I have to clean the Diet Pepsi off my laptop. LOL!!! Anyway, beautiful top and, of course, very entertaining review. And I MUST have that fabric!!

Love, love, love this top, and the fabric you've chosen is scrumptious! I really like your idea to use banding instead of elastic across the top, and may borrow that tip, if you don't mind. Great top. -Lily

Love the top and it will go so well with the tan and the brown pants you have made.

Wow! Love this top. I have to get this pattern because every top I've seen it reviewed has turned out fantastic!

Gorgeous top, great review. I am about to sew this one too, so I guess I will be the 18th reviewer.

This is so inspires me to try it also. I really like the idea of the band at the neck. Is it alittle smaller lengthwise to hold everything close?
