Both your tops look great & fit you well. I really appreciate your thorough review!

What nice tops. The boat neck makes it very chic and the mesh double layers worked out beautifully.

Nice work here, Sue, and both tops look great on you. Cutting two fronts and backs in the mesh is a great idea. I have no doubt you will be making many more variations of this pattern.

Great tops. Great review!

Both of your tops are beautiful and that style really looks good on you. It is really cool the way the print from the lining shows through, I never would have thought to try that, it is a great effect.

Great looking tops. I do like the quarter sleeves as well. Great job!!

The mesh top looks great - and maybe if we could get access to real stretch interfacing then using it in the way Burda suggests would work - otherwise it's just too stiff!!

This is such a sensational top on you, Sue! I foresee that this will be a favorite pattern of 2009!

Pretty tops, especially the mesh version.

What a smart idea of sewing 2 fronts and 2 backs, automatic neckline finish! Love your tops.

Lovely tops, this is such a flattering neckline.

I love boat necks, too. I like the way you lined front and back version 2 and the sleeves are left unlined-this looks nice and is interesting to view.

Gorgeous! Wonderful idea about doubling the mesh knit front and back pieces!

Great looking top! You can make this one in a different colors and prints.

Very nice neckline on these tops-it suits you perfectly. I am going to "steal" your idea on eliminating facings in this style.

Nice looking tops. I like your idea to eliminate the facing. I don't like them either, especially on knits. I just love that mesh fabric.

Thanks for the info on the neckline interfacing. You got two great tops!

Great idea to sew the fronts and backs together. I have been thinking about doing this as I often find facings show through and just don't look that great. I'll try your way next time!
