I am so in love with raglan sleeves right now. Great use for your leftover fabric!

Cidell, I loved your dress in this fabric and I love the top too! You have such a good eye for fabric design placement and you've done such a great job with your use of it on this entire garment. Fabulous work and you look stunning!

This is so pretty! Great use of the fabric's design. And I love the idea of bringing 'gentleman caller' back into vogue -- we need more civility in our language!

I, too, recognized this beautiful fabric right off, and I well remember that stunner of a dress you made. This top is equally so! Your skillfull placement of the design just makes it. :o)

I love this fabric, and your great top really shows it off perfectly (again, the dress is super cool as well). I agree with your astute gentleman caller!

You know it's good when you cut through the man fog and get a compliment right off the bat. Great job and use of the too-good-to-leave-in-the-scrap-bin fabric.

Forget sewing! I want to spend an afternoon in your closet! Would you send me your rejects? Your creations are incredible.

Cidell, you looks so svelte and electrifying in your new top! Your G.C. definitely has great taste!

Very cute! I love that fabric--and it keeps popping up on PR. I'm kinda bummed that I didn't pick some up when Ann had it in stock!

Love the way you utilized the pattern on teh fabric with the sewing pattern. Clever girl, you are!

KIller! I love it. Ever since Gigi got us all going on this fabric I've seen a few versions using this fabric that just curl my hair (and not in a good way) in terms of how they placed the design, but your versions are two of the best!

That looks great! I always hesitated to make this one because of the word "plunging" in the description, but it doesn't look low at all on you.

That gentleman caller is quite a find -- he not only notices, but remembers your clothes and compliments them as well.

Love this top and the way you placed the print at the neckline!

Don't you just love it when they pay attention to what you wear. Love this and your use of the fabric is wonderful.

What a great way to continue to wear this awesome print during the cooler months.

This definitely a gorgeous top, on a gorgeous woman! Super use of that fabric.
