That looks really cute on you and makes a really cute outfit. I have this top already cut out and ready to sew. I enjoyed checking out your blog and was hooked by your very first sentence! Thank you!

I LOVE this pattern! I have made it twice and have no plans of retiring it anytime soon. It is such a great looking pattern. Your version is wonderful and fits you perfectly. I have only made it in solid colors. Your version is beautiful in a print!

What a great outfit, with the shoes and the bag that you are wearing (carrying) you could go to any nice afternoon affair (I mean that in the tea and crumpets type of affair). A change of shoes and you have a whole new look! Thanks for adding the piece about the backwards facings and zipper....I feel better about myself now...I just spent too much time taking out a ruffle on a skirt that I put on completely backwards...twice!

I'm sorry to use this tired statement, but "You are too cute in this outfit!!" I have this top cut out and your version is making me go sew it up! And I never knew how RTW these friggin shorts were!! I'm going to make those too. Great review!! and wicked fit on the shorts!

Such a fun and attractive top on you, Kim! Thanks for your review! You're making me search for this pattern in my stash somewhere...

Perfect timing! I have this pattern planned for the top and the shorts (which are a direct copy of my fav RTW Anne Kleins). And I wear a 14 too! You make a great model!

what a terrific summer outfit! i love this on you. thank you for the info about sizing- we are almost exactly the same size. I am learning that I typically should start with sz 14 and adjust down as needed. It is helpful to hear someone else(with more experience) doing the same!
