Absolutely gorgeous wrap top! I don't usually drawn to this type of top; you changed my mind.

I just stitched up a muslin and am at a crossroads about making it in fashion fabric, now that I've seen your version, I will. Your husband chose a beautiful fabric!

GREAT top!!!! And 10" of new fallen snow is music to my ears. By the time I got to Apple Annie Fabrics for my sewing class, she had sold out of this issue of Burda WOF in ONE day. There are so many gorgeous things in it. Thanks for sharing (and standing in the snow.)

I love anything that is wrapped and has waist ties. But (looking at the magazine photo) I thought this top was really nothing special. Wrong! Yours looks wonderful!

Your husband gets a gold star or maybe an entire constellation and you get a round of applause for this great top! I like this pattern too and have been plotting what to do with it. You guys are a great team!

Dawn, you are absolutely Alaskan Cool in this stylish, upscale top! The fabric is smashing (thanks to DH), the design cutting edge, and the silhouette so perfectly suited to your tiny, shapely body. And here's my formal 'thank you' for standing in the snow to show us - brrrr. This is really special; make more of them. Lovely, Lily

Simply elegant! Great top. You sew up some wonderful garments. I was wondering about your outdoor pose ~ it has to be a bit chilly in AK. Your DH sounds like a real keeper ~ not only does he bring you fabric but he brings you nice fabric!

I saw this BWOF pattern and immediately loved it but didn't think it was for me. You've done a beautiful job using this fabric for it. I might have to reconsider for myself now. Thanks for the review.

Love the top and all the fabric your DH bought!! Do you know where he bought it?? I'm going to Houston in a week to visit my family and would love to check it out! Thanks for the great review.

I <3 <3 <3 this! I didn't give it a second look in the magazine, but your fabric has given it a new look!

What a great-looking top, and what I husband to have got you the fabric! In addition to being a sweetie, the man has a terrific eye for color and design.

Your Husband Buys You Fabric??? EEEEEk. Can we get a clone? Seriously, you are a very fortunate woman. Love the top and the colors are just great on you.

Of all the beautiful clothes I have seen from you, this one is perhaps my favorite. What terrific fabric and style.

This is a lovely top, it looks great in that print.

What a great idea for printed gauze fabrics ... I never would have thought to try this combination .. looks chic and casual at the same time.
