A beautiful top, as always!

This looks like a winner of a pattern (and fabrics). All your tops turned out really nice.

You should realize that now I'm searching for similar fabric! lol. I love what you did with this top....both times.

How funny that your top and Debbie's ended up being next to each other! Nice job on this, Lori.

Great top! And check it out: Right next to your fabulous top in the review gallery is Debbie's fabulous top out of this same fabric. I love both of them!

Your new version is stunning! I think Debbie Cook just posted a version of the Jalie sweetheart top using this same fabric!

Very pretty top! This fabric has been very popular - always with great results.

Beautiful and stunning application of a border print. As for Aunt Gail question on the thinness of the fabric. I have learned to double the front of super thin fabric which is not so easy to do to get it to look good on the inside. I have made many knit tops this way and have yet to find the most effective method. However, the effect is much smoother especially if you are a little lumpy.

Your new version is just lovely! That fabric is so gorgeous, and I like what you did with the contrasting fabric. Looks like a fun top that will dress up or dress down really nicely.

The picture on the pattern envelope did nothing for me..what is that wonky sideways off kilter thing the model is doing? Your version is great.

Nice! I almost got this fabric myself earlier this spring and now I wish I had bought it.

Gorgeous top! Love the fabric--it looks pretty in this style of top. Thanks for the review.

As usual, great review! That is a very cute tunic/top.
Aunt Gail said... (6/19/08 6:37 PM) Reply
Another great review Lori. But I do have a question if you don't mind responding? That top looks great but I can really see how THIN the material is. In your opinion, if you had used a THICKER knit material, would the unique neckline gathering been too bulky? I know I'll have to do a FBA already. Hugs and keep on with your great sharing!
