I can't think of ANY way this could be made any better! It's absolutely PERFECT, and you're just BEAUTIFUL in it. Not only that, when I opened your first picture, you gave me the idea to link the project photo to the "large" size picture on Flickr instead of the smaller size. When I want to see the project photo, I really want to SEE it. :o) I don't know why I never thought of this before. (On another note, I may take your photo to my hair stylist and ask her if my hair would behave as well as yours if I copied your style. I suspect the answer will be, "ON WHAT PLANET?") Great review!

Bonjour Mahler! (It happens I just ran across your review while having a break from sewing:)) You are so beautiful and elegant in this wonderful Asian tunic and these colors were made for you! As usual, outstanding work and beautiful finish; I'm very interested in seeing your sewing tip if you ever take pictures of it! I'm a fan of asian looks too!

Annette, believe me that hair cut did not look good to start with. I cried for days before my hair grew back and I found one way to style it. If you want my tip, write me a message and I will give you my secret. ;-)

The usual Mahler haute couture - absolutely lovely - not sure how I missed this pattern as I too like Asian inspired clothes and often use 100% cotton from a quilting store that carries a ton of designs. Thanks for such a helpful review - will definitely check the neck measurement

I love your fashion sense. It makes the rest of us look so pedestrian. What an exquisite top and your style and confidence shine with it.

Bonjour Mahler, C'est une plaisir de lire votre critique de ce patron. Vous etes tres belle dans cette robe. Bon travail! J'ai visite chez Madelaine a Montreal. C'est le meilleur magasin de tissus que j'ai trouve. Carole etait fantastique. Merci de m'aider de trouver cette endroit. S'il vous plait excuser mon francais. A Bientot, Gaylene

C'est magnifique! J'adore les couleurs du tissu, and comment vous avez la combine avec ceux-ci pantalons blancs. Parfaite! (J'espere que ma traduction ici est comprehensible...)

Tres jolie, Mahler! Beautifully crafted top! You and the top should definitely grace the cover of my current issue of Bazaar!

Beautiful! I've made the pants from this pattern but never the top...I see I need to pull it out! Thanks for the tip on fitting the neck; collars tend to be tight on me so I'll definitley size up there!

Thanks for the tip on the facings/neckline. I made a mock up using some corduroy, and had the same problem with the facings, but then, it was a muslin, so I didn't bother to fix it. I'll be more careful with the actual fabric. I'm kind of surprised that you had to lower the darts, as they were too low for both me and my daughter. Since it's for my daughter and she's small in the chest, I'm intending on just removing them. Maybe they're lower in the larger sizes?
