You look /great in your new top-I love the fabric! You are right about choosing a light-weight fabric. I made this in a bulkier interlock and though it fits, it isn't a favorite, and its because of the bulk. Great review!

Looks fabulous and sounds like a great candidate for onionskin or something that lightweight. I've wondered about this top -- nice review.

I've had my eye on this pattern for a while and am happy to see your review on it. Thanks for the tip on using the thin fabric! I've seen this top in RTW and fell in love... your version is awesome. Thanks for sharing!
