Wow, I love this shirt! Everyone makes such gorgeous things from BWOF, I may have to cave and get a subscription. Both versions are super-cute, and I can't wait to see your next ones!

They look great, and thanks for reminding me about Belinda's modification.

Both versions are very cute! It's nice to see this made up in both a print and a solid. As always, thank you for your very informative and detailed review!

SO cute! You find such awesome fabric at such wonderful prices! These tops look terrific. I especially love the matching look for you and Heather!

This top looks great! I love both versions and with the fabric being so different, it doesn't even look like the same pattern!

Re Becca said...
That really does look pretty on you. You did a great job on the neckline and it looks like you got those sleeves just right.

Very cute! It's a nice solid basic with a little bit of interest. I like your fabric choices.

Nice tops and thanks for the 80's flashbacks. :) I always enjoy reading your reviews and found myself humming along to some 80's classics. :)

Excellent job, review, and tops! Great pics--you and Heather were born to make red look rich.

I can't beleive I haven't seen any reviews for this top before. It's so pretty. I like both but the red is especially cute on you.

It's not a mystery ... and still we try to see ... why something good can look so great ... Louella, these are really, really lovely tops. The neckline is really elegant and those sleeves are feminine without being over the top. I love what you've done and I can't wait to see your intended variations. Great stuff!

The tops look great. Can't wait to see what you are up to next.

Cute top. I wore mine to work yesterday. I love the way yours turned out and the Pics with you and Heather are charming. Both your variations are a lot of fun. I was thinking I might have to make the dress version in bright red and now I really think so after seeing your top!

I really like this top more and more every time I see someone make it.

Bwahaha!! I love you, Louella!!! Your reviews are always my faves. I want to make this and with yours and Belinda's sleeve adjustment maybe I actually will tackle it!

These are great! I love the sleeves; I'm a self confessed sleeve-junkie. What a great style on you!
