You make this tunic look so fun and chic! I enjoyed your review!

Looks so cute on you! Of course, with your high-octane smile, I think most anything would look cute on you, but this is very flattering!

I really like your neckline. I'm not into lace for myself, so seeing how you simply placed the facing on the outside will give me some alternatives on future projects. The shape of your neckline is very nice. Thanks for a good review!

The neckline shape is great for you and chacha45 has it right - a high-octane smile makes any outfit look fantastic. Also, great color for you.

This pattern looks so nice and cool for summer wear. I have a terrible time with necklines being too low or open so would need to be careful with this pattern. It looks really cute on you.

What a wonderfully summery top. The neckline facing area turned out so nicely, well worth the hard work.

Very nice top - love the colour - looks great on you - and oh boy - your dazzling smile is gonna take you places!!

Love the neckline, love the color, love the fit, but mostly I love the beautiful smile. Sondra your top is much nicer than the too-large top on that very tall skinny model they put on the envelope.

What a great tunic! You look great in it. I especially like your take on the neckline. This may be a shapeless style but you have done what it takes to make the rest of us want one.

This top looks very nice. I really like the neckline.

This is a flattering color on you as well.

I love your tunic, which looks great on you. The color is so pretty, and the fabric is just right.

Dang! I've mulled over this top many times, but I don't think I've ever bought the pattern. Yours is SO cute! GREAT review, too. :o)

Sandra- I'm about to make my 3rd top from this pattern (have raised the neckline:non-lace view)and just LOVE your version of it. I can see a 4th (plain fabric) version coming up soon!

I was unsure about this pattern and I just bought it. But after seeing your top I feel much better. It looks so much nicer than I expected from seeing the envelope! Thanks for the helpful review and the picture.
