I love this pattern too. I am inspired to get it out and use it again. I did it in turquoise linen and I was amazed how good it looked in spite of my large bust.

The dress is really pretty--I don't think I would have thought to lengthen the tunic. Beautiful fabric choices too.

Bohemian chic is the term that comes to mind for me. They're smart yet relaxed, and really distinctive.

Your Louise Cutting tops and dress are really nice and fit you perfectly. I love the color and fabric of your dress here. I agree that you have a tried and true pattern.

I just bought this pattern and ran across your review as I was looking for input on how good this pattern is. All of your versions of this top are lovely and well executed. Your thorough review has helped me and I'll be printing it out to refer to as I sew.

I just bought this pattern, so thanks for this review. Your blouses are lovely. I'm fast becoming a "Cutting" fan.

Gorgeous blouses, beautifully sewn. You really do justice to Louise's designs and techniques. Great review, thank you.

I have this pattern and seeing your finished blouses is inspiration! Both of your blouses are lovely and very professionally completed. I love Louise Cutting's patterns, too. They always feel like an adventure to me.

Thank you all for such nice comments. I am making another one in some wool challis. Check my blog out for the work in progress. Christa, you should check out Louise Cutting's patterns. You really get what you pay for in terms of the illustrations and instructions for industry techniques. Louise collaborates with Linda Lee of the Sewing Workshop on "Shapes", another independent pattern line. I have enjoyed sewing garments from all three lines.

It looks like a handy wardrobe staple - actually both styles will be. I like your fabric choices with this pattern.
