What a fun print that makes a super top! In an ordinary plain fabric, it would just be another RTW-looking top, but the print makes it special and like you bought it from a boutique.

This is SOOOOOOOOO cute! :o)) You wear these wild prints SO well, too -- ha! I love the design of the sleeves on this top, almost like half sleeves. Great idea on that collar. I too like the slight draped effect that you have there.

LOL! Love your honey's announcement of BWOF's arrival in the mail! Great job on this awesome top. Yes, avoid all zippers when possible!

Your fabric is so cute, and it is really clever of you to work out how to avoid the zipper. Now when my magazine comes in about 3 weeks I will know what to do!

Louella, this can only be described as totally GROOVY! What gorgeous fabric and you look fabulous in this! Now that you have everything about the pattern nutted out, you must make it again. It's definitely a cut above the standard, but TNT, tops. Great work!

Cute top! BWOF came early for me as well. I agree with you...a lot of cool looking outfits in this issue.

Oh that's so cute. I can't wait to get my copy. Thanks for a very helpful review, you will have saved me hours of tearing my hair out over those sleeves I'm sure.

Very cute! I can't believe how quickly you cranked this out--especially with the re-drafting and other changes!

Oh wow thanks for all the helpful hints!! This shirt was one of the reasons I love the 8/08 issue. I got mine and now have to examine it
