I think your top looks great on you. I think because it is sheer this top works for you, even if it wouldn't be the right pattern in an opaque fabric. And silk chiffon is just heavenly to wear . . .

I love this...the fabric is beautiful and I like the kimono sleeves. It's pretty on you too! If you really do not like it on, how about a similar tunic but with a center seam in front with one closure? Then it would be even more airy and flow-y. That would be great over a simple dress.

I think it looks divine with the black slacks and cami. I really like the addition of the elastic at the back, too. It looks completely different from the photo in the mag - the BWOF version was sort of frowsy, but yours is tres chic!

The combination of this sheer fabric and black is wonderful. It looks like very comfortable for a hot day, and still be very stylish.

This is a gorgeous top on you. I love the sheer chiffon.

I definitely think the sheer fabric works with this top. Go make yourself that slinky tank so this pretty top doesn't end up in the back of your closet - it's too nice to be an orphan.

Robyn, so sorry to hear that you're not that crazy about this top because I think it looks really beautiful and, in your photo, it looks good on you. Silk chiffon is so luscious and this print really is lovely. Sheer fabrics are always a joy to wear. You've done so much work on this top, it would be a shame not to wear it a lot. Now is the time to make that slinky tank dress which will look fabulous with this!

I think you have made a fabulous top to wear when it is hot....It's perfect for summer and your fabric couldn't be any more delicious!!

I've been waiting for the right fabric myself for this one. But I wouldn't count this out as a wearable piece. I think it looks amazing on you.

Robin,the very first word than came to mind when I checked your photo was-beautiful! I would be so happy if I could get a look like that myself.
