SUPER cute top! It has SO many special details. I LOVE that neckline, and especially that you used the contrasting fabric, AND those pockets are PEREFCT with your decorative stitching. The only thing is, I thought I (GREAT BIG FONT, BOLD, UNDERLINED, IN RED) was your only very dear friend. Heh-heh-heh. :o)) Can't wait to see the next version! Okay, I'm now OFFICIALLY buckling down on the typing (which I've been saying for three hours now).

I LOVE this top! I can't decide WHICH one I like better. Of course, the SUNGLASSES are PERFECT for this cute print -- ha! We bought SO MANY PATTERNS when I was there, I'll probably NEVER HAVE TO BUY PATTERNS AGAIN. :o) I never bought ANY patterns before I met y'all, so you must be a bad influence on me, don't you reckon? :o) Heh-heh-heh. We'd better save our dough for the NEXT shopping extravaganza! WHO KNOWS what we might find! (P.S. Whattaya' mean by the 15-train thing?)

What a cute top. I just realized that it had a gathered neckband. I guess I thought it was some kind of trim on the purple one. It is really unique and makes your top special.

Those tops are adorable!!! They look so cute on you. I love all the details. Great job on an excellent review as well. I might be too old for that style but I'm tempted to make it anyway after seeing how cute it looks!!!!

I think you're the best dressed girl in Oklahoma. I LOVE both versions of the top and they look great on you. I think I'm going to get this pattern for myself. Thanks for the inspiration.

I REALLY like this one with the different sleeves! And, DARE I MENTION, it's PURPLE? My PSYCHIC self is telling me you're wearing it RAT NOW! Am I RIGHT? :o)) I LOVE your fancy stitching on the pockets, too!

Another wonderfully cute top! I dug this pattern out a few days ago to sew a version for my DD after seeing your last two versions and here you are with yet another one. Someone might get the idea that you like this pattern. LOL!

Another winner from this pattern! Even with that distinctive neckline, you've given each of these their own character, so they don't look at all repetitious. And purple is DEFINITELY a good color for you. Enjoy your new top!

Karendee said...
What adorable trio of tops! And you look so good in each of them. Your workmanship is excellent, and I appreciate all the pictures. That helps me visualize the process! I also really love the little ruffled looking neckline casing. Darling!

McCall's DIY should use you as one of their models. Not only do you look fabulous in their clothes, but you actually sewed them yourself. Perhaps you should send your review into the company.
