Such fun! I loved reading the review, and I love your results... I agree that modern patterns could take some pointers from older patterns, too. OK, great -- now I have the Bee Gees on my brain. Argh!

WHAT FUN! I love this top! (anything that wraps, twists or flips!) Loved the clip of Shirley & David Cassidy! (Way groovy pony tail~very 'I Dream of Genie'!) I was totally in love with David Cassidy in 1973! And then, JT~can anyone move like that dude? Wow! All I can say is "Smokin' Hot' all the way around. (gotta go look for my stobe light...)

Woman, you are THE Queen of Retro!!! Fab top!

Hey, I've always loved Sly, too. :o) And after seeing David Cassidy, I'm feeling the need to look up Bobby Sherman. Your blouse is a real winner! That's a very flattering style on you, and I particularly like that fabric, AND the '70s collar! :o)

To be sung to the tune of 'Stayin' Alive': Well, we can tell by the way you use that chalk, You're a sewing queen, no time to talk, Music loud, lighting warm, Everything you sew looks great on your form, And it's alright, it's OK, we won't look the other way ... First of all, your top looks fabulous on you! I love the colors because they're so warm and this is a very flattering style on you. Secondly, I love your reviews! You always make them so interesting to read. Great work!!!

Wonderful top, fits your spirit. Thank you for the trip down memory lane. Mom taught Travolta moves in ballroom dance class :-) He's the only celebrity that made me a little awestruck upon meeting- he's an "awe"some person.

I absolutely love everything about this top! The collar (I love those 70's collars, too), the fabric that you chose, the fit...everything! This looks fabulous on you!

Heatherrique, you write the best-- and most entertaining-- reviews! Love your wrap top-- and thanks for the great trip down memory lane!

Cute top. Lots of those tops out now. It's hard to believe that John Travolta started out as a dancer.

I think I sewed that pattern when it was new. OMG - I have patterns older than you are! Your link to SNF and Travolta's dancing brought up a philosophical question: would disco have existed if stretch polyester had never been invented?
