Gorgeous color, too! The top looks great on you. Thanks for the hints in your review. I have this in my stash but haven't gotten there yet. I'll print out your review and add it to the pattern envelop.

It really looks great. Thanks for the review, I have this pattern but keep putting it off, I think you've inspired me to push it to the top of my list.

I LOVE that color and fabric on you - and it suits your username too (looks kind of peacock blue to me!) I made a similar style in a Vogue pattern, and I find the collar always wants to pull in an uncomfortable way - do you find this to be so? If not I may try this pattern instead, since I really love this style, and as you note, it's wonderful for cold weather. And thanks for such a helpful review - you have lots of excellent tips.

I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT! :O)) That's all I got to say (other than I'm wishing I had some of that fabric, as I DO already have the pattern).

Gorgeous top in a gorgeous color. The pattern looks just like Vogue 7799.

LOVE this on you, the style, fit, and cute that your user name is Peacock and you're wearing peacock blue. Handwork? Blech! not my favorite part of sewing, but maybe worth it in this case : )

Well, I'm lazy, I always just topstitch the hems... sometimes with a semi-decorative stretch stitch, it looks like I made an effort :-). But this shirt is totally stunning, it suits you perfectly in every possible way. Amazing what the right color can do..

Extremely attractive top, and very flattering to your complexion and coloring. I also love your contemplative project photo. I'm sorry that the instructions gave you some trouble, but the result is so worthwhile. I'd make many. Lovely, Lily
