Beautiful top--very elegant! I never would have looked twice at the pattern if not for your review. And paired with the Vogue skirt (in your blog photo), it looks wonderful and very close to the original inspiration dress.

That color is a hit on you... oh well what color or clothes you sew is not a hit on you. This is so feminine !

I agree Erica, you win the prize for finding the pattern 'diamonds in the rough'. Looks amazing!

Lovely, How did you finish the edges of the ruffle? Narrow hem? Oh, and where did you find the fabric. And did you cut thru two layers (the fashion and "muslin" fabric) at the same time?

Thanks Lauri Jean, no it doesn't have a zipper. It's a pullover camisole.

Well, I see you've managed to whip up (albeit in a little more than two hours :o) another fabulous top. They should use your picture for the pattern, takes it to a whole new level. Such a dreamy fabric, too.

Miss Erica, I swear, every time you make something new I have to give that pattern another look. :) This is no exception!

@ Lucinda, I didn't shorten it, I just didn't bother lengthening it since it is going to be tucked in.

Wonderful top, now I want to make one! Did you end up shortening the ruffle? It looks longer on the envelope design.

Very nice!! I am glad I am not the only one that takes longer than the super speedy pattern description.

Thank you for the idea to use old fabric as a stabilizer for cutting. Beautiful outfit!
