THanks for the tutorial! The placket looks great. Nice shirt, I think I have that pattern in my stash... will have to dig it up.

Another great top. I have a couple of Jalie patterns, but haven't tried them yet. I think I better!

Dawn, this was a visual bonanza! Two beautiful polo shirts, *stunning* shoes from DH, and an inviting, organized sewing room. Since I missed the original review, I'm so pleased to have 'caught up' here. (How do you manage to still look cute with a cap smashed on your head?) Oh, how could I forget the fab tutorial; it's the best. Lovely, Lily

Great polo! I have this issue in my collection so I'll drag it out and take a look at it. By the way, Julie's Timmel site is closing SOON so download the tutorial now if you want to have it for reference.

I would have never thoiught of using this fabric for this type top but glad you did as I think it made up very well and is cute. I think small doses of this lovely fabric works best as you said. I really like the fabric, it definitely pops! Good job as usual!

ooh I just rediscovered this pattern a few days ago when I was using this issue for a dress bottom. We're so in tune! It looks fantastic with that print, and thanks very much for the placket tutorial!

Cute, cute, cute! I've always wanted to try that pattern, you did a great job.

You're right, this is definitely a Statement Knit, but since the statement is, "Hey, I look GOOD!" you're okay. Great top, definitely a few more in solid colors now that you've beaten that placket into submission.

I really like this polo and I can't believe it's from 2005. Your fabric choice is fabulous.

Oh, I LOVE this!! I want that fabric! Very cute on you, and fabulous shoes, too! :) I'm gonna have to keep my eyes open for this issue.

Great style! Love it!

A great classic shirt although your fabric choice gives it a great twist. It's always good to be reminded about some of the "vintage" BWOFs we all have stashed away!

Super adorable. And you got a bargain in that fabric from Ann. It's 2x the price at G Street Fabric. You look sensational.

Great shirt, I really like the fabric and it was a good choice for the polo style.

Cute shirt - but what I am really amazed at is the complimentary op-art background that you found to pose against! Thanks for the helpful tutorial link.
