Your top looks very good on you, great fit. I like the fluttery sleeve on this version, although I'm afraid to try it for myself, I think the style doesn't fit me well, but after seeing yours, I just might try this style again. Last night, I traced the pattern and cut my fabric, except for the sleeve, couldn't decide which one I wanted to do, and I thought I would check out for ideas, thanks for your review, and I love your top!

I love the combination of the cross-over top and the fluttery sleeves. Very pretty!

donna mel - I didn't make any alterations to the sleeves at all, I think there are 3 different sleeves in this pattern, the one I made, a cap sleeve and the long flared sleeve which can all be used for the different tops.

THe drawing on the pattern has always intimidated me. Yet after seeing this cute top made up, I want to sew it.

Super cute top and yes... this is still lurking in my pattern stash but I have fabric specifically purchased to make it up. Soon I hope! Thanks for sharing your fantastic version of this top!

Nice version of this very popular top. I haven't made this version yet and I think I should. It looks very nice on you.

Your top is gorgeous! Love the fabric. Your version should be on the pattern envelope. :)
