Great top! I like the peplum and your thoughts concerning true! Think I'll have to make this one. Thanks for your review. Oh, and I agree with you about BWOF's plunging necklines..I always raise mine, too.

What a pretty top! I've been eyeing this one since my Burda magazine arrived, and I may just have to sew it after seeing yours. Congratulations!

Very lovely top, Kathleen. It looks great on you, the lines are lovely.

Looks great. And you can make another if you do it up for warm weather.

Great interpretation of this lovely top. It fits you beautifully. Good thinking on stitching the pleats in place. The way this looks on you, having 1 or 2 (or even 3) more would not be bad, especially since as another said, color and/or print would change the look. The more I see this top the more I want one ~ with its raglan sleeves, it is much nicer than a similar top I picked up from Ann Taylor's sale rack.

Very smart looking top - you did a wonderful job on it! Make it again! While distinctive, it's so lovely that I don't think you can have too many :-)

Very cute top. It looks so nice on you.

It looks great and I think you can have two if you want. It would look entirely different in a print.

Boy oh boy, did that ever turn out nicely~ the 3/4 sleeves really complement the design. The pleats look fabulous. Just outstanding! color is sharp too... you look terrific in your new top.

Really nice! I think it's worth the pressing effort to wear it more often. (and I press almost nothing!)

That's a smart looking top! The pleats look lovely, stitched the way you have done.
