What a great idea to turn this into a sleeveless top! I'll bet it would look cute over just a tank top and a pair of jeans.

Such a NICE jacket for walking the dog! I don't look that nice when I go to the supermarket! Great job!

This is adorable. I would never have thought of making the jacket without sleeves, but it looks great!

Annette, it looks great on you and I like it too! I would never have thought to leave sleeves off a jacket pattern to make a top, but now you've got me thinking ... You'll certainly be the most stylish dog walker in your area!

Okay, Anne, you can have my hair if I can have your body! :o) Matter of fact, I'd gladly shave my head!

It sure turned out very cute - I love it - you are busy!! Glad I am too far away to run into you when I am dog walking (neigbour's pooch) - I would hide until the fashionable lady went by!!

That top is super cute!! I love how you styled it with the tank and the looks like it could be dressy or casual depending on your accessories!

Awesome! I love your new top. I have this pattern on my list. I kept moving it down in priority as the weather kept getting warmer and then we had a heatwave. It's now back on top and your review has been printed. Thanks for all the tips on changing this jacket into a wonderful warm weather top. And thanks for the many pictures detailing your changes and tips. Great job! :)

Wow, I wear unfashionable cotton t-shirts to walk my dog! Your top is beautiful and sewn very nicely. Thanks for all of the photos and descriptions of your changes.
