What a nice daughter --- maybe you can burn through some of your stash making tops for your mom....double benefit, a happy mom and more room for new fabric. Thanks for the review.

Very nice! The embelishments really look terrific. I made a version of this top in rayon/lycra with the short sleeve (unmodified) and found the sleeve didn't look good with the top. I thought it was too narrow for the style of the bodice. Since I was out of material, I just re-cut the sleeve according to the cap-sleeve pattern and it made all the difference! Perhaps next time I will add width to the short sleeve as you did. Thanks for your tips on the embelishments & pattern modifications.

Lovely. This is still my favorite top and I am holding myself back from making another one!

Hi Sue - I was just looking at your fantastic review but unfortunately all your pictures (with the exception of the changes to the sleeve) are no longer available to view. If you ever get the time to change the links it would be lovely to see the top and trim. Thanks for the review.
