How nice to see this done up. I'm going to try it in silk and see what happens. Love the crystals - really sets it off!

I love this pattern, after I saw this exact same style in a very expensive RTW shop here last spring that had beading on the yoke. The price was AU$160 so I figured I could make it cheaper myself! Your top looks fantastic! thanks for reviewing this.

I think you'd have to go with a strapless bra with this one - the neckline is just rounded enough that the straps would show through.

Love it! Can you wear a bra with that top okay? Love all the bling too!

Kath - I'll take an update photo once I'm not longer sporting the pregnancy belly (I'm now OVERDUE!). Although, I do have to admit, it doesn't look bad as a maternity top - just make sure you use a very stretchy material.

What a beautiful top, Stacy, and its shows up very nicely in your photo. Your rhinestones are placed absolutely perfectly and I'll be that took a bit of time, even on your dressform. The precision of your detail work is to be envied, as is the glamour of your stylish top. -Lily

I love the BLING! Nice composition of fabric and jewels. You'll be able to wear this with just about everything and will look great doing so!

Very Cute Top Stacy! Great tip to add the rhinestones while the top is on the dressform. Are the rhinestones sewn or glued on? (okay I read on your blog that they are glued on!) Happy babymaking by the way- I was wondering how close you were.

Looks great! I'd love to see a picture of you wearing it.
