I really appreciate your explanation of how you added the facing. I plan to make this top in a satin with a slight stretch.

Your review of this pattern is informative and timely as I have just purchased this pattern. I like the colour of your fabric, your neckline and that you used a woven fabric. Your top looks terrific on you. Thanks for the review.

Very impressive with adding the ribbon. Plus it gives it a nice touch.

What a lovely top - I have this pattern in my stash and it would never have occurred to me to make it up in a woven. Now you've given me a lot of new options for this pattern thanks!

This is a beautiful top, and what lovely fabric you used.

What a beautiful use of the printed fabric and your modifications make this pattern much more attractive. (I guess I'm old-school or maybe just old; to me raw edges = laziness.) I'll keep my eye out for what you do with view C, which is on my current b-list of projects.

Mahler, I bought the fabric at Spotlight australia and it should still be available. Here is their website. It is actually called Peacock Satin. NAYY.
