Lil, your sister's top turned out beautifully. I think you need to promote yourself to advanced beginner. It's long overdue.

Great review on all of the tops you've made! They have all turned out super~and all of the variety you've shown is inspiring! I love top you made for your sister~the solid color fabric really makes the ruching stand out. I can see why she loved her top and took the pattern!

I really like this top! I thought that sleeveless top seemed a bit too small, but this one fits great.

Wow, I love this top. The print is so lovely and I really do like the 3/4 length sleeves better with the foldover version.

I really like this one. Sometimes we have to play with fabric to find out what looks best and - you've found it.

Cute tops, thanks for showing the side-by-side of the tops. I like comparing the neckline variations.
