Myrooks -- On the tan top, I used the suggested topstitching technique in the pattern: wide zigzag alternating with straight stitch. I used thread a shade or two lighter to make it stand out more; I was very pleased with the result. On the red top, I topstitched with a long straight stitch.

I just received this pattern and wanted to ask what topstitching treatment did you use and did you topstitch on your regular sewing machine? I really love the way your shirts turned out!

Looks fabulous! I must try this pattern, thanks for the great review!

Carolyn, these tops are so flattering on you that it's difficult to choose a favorite. I think the 'cafe au lait' has a slight edge for me. You have the perfect body type to showcase the assymetrical seaming, and you look just lovely in both of them. -Lily

I love both of these shirts on you, particularly the red one--it looks to be a good pattern.

Great looking t-shirts. Thanks for providing the details on the sizing and tips/suggestions.

Ohhh . . . beautiful! Everything mine wasn't, though I notice that neckband is still an issue, one way or another. Your shirts are just perfect!

Nice looking tops - so glad to see reviews of this before I cut mine out. Good to know it fits well and look good

Love the tops. It's fun to see something a bit out of the ordinary. You certainly wear red well!

Those tee's look marvelous! I think I need to get this pattern. Everybody who has reviewed has raved. I too need some summer tee's that are not boring, this certainly fits the bill.

Well, I wish I could throw on a pair of jeans and a T-shirt and look as nice as you do! The details on these tops are "just enough" to add a little pizzaz. I love them!

You are right, these are interesting Ts! Thanks for the close-up on the neck treatment. That's a nifty design feature.

Carolyn - I like both of your tops. I like the neckband method you used. I'll try it on my next one. After making View B, I can't imagine using a very drapey fabric on these. BTW, if you made an 8 you are a teeny, tiny little thing!

Thank you for bringing this pattern to my attention. I really like the View C on the pattern envelope. Your T's turned out great!

I bought this pattern too because it was an non boring t. It looks great on you and I wondered if I could make this in my rayon jersey, thinking as you that it is perhaps too drapey. Thanks for the great review
