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!

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.

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.

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.
