Well, having seen your beautiful version, I think I like this better as a blouse than a dress! :o) I LOVE IT!

Thanks for the review - I love your tip on stitching down the pleats to avoid the maternity look.

Great top. So cool looking. Great fabric. Texture plus pattern works.

Very nice interpretation on a darling top- your changes made it special. Your hint about not needing a zipper is especially valuable, because I'd rather avoid a zipper if at all possible.

I love your top! I never would have discovered this pattern without your review. THank you! Top looks wonderful on you...

Very cute top. I was leery of the pleated front (prego effect) but it hangs nicely on you I may have to reconsider.

Wow! Beautiful. Love the striped fabric. You have a way of taking a simple fabric and making your top look awesome. Enjoyed your review.

Once again a great review Vonne. The top looks lovely on you and the fabric you chose looks great. I bought this pattern myself last week so I am keen to give it a go also now. Good to see you back reviewing your lovely projects.

Gorgeous top on you, Vonnevo! I actually like your version better than Simpie's! Thanks for such a very helpful and timely review!

I've passed over this pattern many times, but after seeing your version I am looking at it in a different light! The pleats "make" this blouse! I love the striped fabric, it really adds interest!! Fabulous job!

That looks so cute and comfortable. Thanks for the tips on using these patterns, it sounds like it could be confusing.

Thank you for all the helpful tips and ideas. I have this pattern but haven't made it, fearing the "maternity look". Love your idea for stitching down the pleats.

How cute can you get? I LOVE it!

I didn't notice this pattern in the catalogue and the line drawings look a bit ordinary, but your version is lovely. I especially like the v-detail on the yoke and the stitched down pleats. It's a cute top without being too "young and cutesy". Very jealous!

Really pretty top. Thanks for all the tips.

Really nice top! I like the fabric you used and great idea to use this dress pattern as a top.

Elasticated cuffs seem to be in this year so another nice project to incorporate them Vonnevo! Love this on you, another lovely project!
