Its so nice in the knit - I'm glad you decided to try it out in a knit for your 2nd top. The drape is so lovely.

Thank you for your great reviews and inspiration Ann. Beautiful and innovative sewing on both your tops.

The knit version is stunning. You look simply beautiful in it. The woven is fun, but you definitely look best in the knit. I like the way the shoulders drape. The necklace is perfect, providing a nice vertical line.

I think I love the drapey one best - with the sash. It looks super. It took me a long time to come round to assymetrical garments but now I'm hooked and you model them so well. Thanks for all your reviews -I,m just about to take the plunge after being given some info on it!!.

Wow, your second version is fabulous! Nice drape and very slenderizing on you. Both belt treatments looks super too. Can't wait to try this pattern. On second look, I see that as far as "pattern reviews" this is actually your 197th not the 200th. It's totally amazing that you have written so many.....thanks for that!

I like this in a drapey fabric - as usual you look fantastic in this but I still have reservations on using this pattern - not at all sure I can carry it off as well as you do.

It is beautiful and works much better in a drapey fabric. It is slenderizing.

You've choosen a wonderful combination of pattern, fabric and style modification. I really like the collar. A great creation for your "200th" review!

Great job. The diagonal hem was brilliant. I think they should pay you for that idea and include it in the pattern. I can't wait to see it in knit.

I think it is very flattering on you! Oh, to only have half of your knowledge....

This is wonderful and I really like your asymmetric hem instead of the emphasis at the hips. I wonder how it would do in a knit? Love the collar. Tell DH you'll turn him into a Romulan!

You always create interesting fashions in the perfect fabric - and you carry them off really well. Love the necklace, too. Is it your creation? It works well with the clean lines of the blouse.

I like the lines of the top and I hope you do make it in the knit. I think it would look fabulous in a drapey knit.

I love your top! And I do think that it is flattering in a cool, avant-garde sort of way. Great fabric!
