thanks! I have some really thin knit I "found" downtown this past weekend... got 5 yards for $1.... so it's good for this "experiment"!

Sue, I think yes. That was my first fabric choice that I didn't have enough of. Just be sure it can support the contrast fabric and buttons.

nice! What do you think... could this be made with a very thin, soft knit?

This piece is spectacular. Not only is it interesting, exciting, and unusual, but it looks great on. I have this pattern, and now it's at the top of my list of patterns to do.

So, I out myself as a Miyake fan. I just finished my version of this top yesterday. It was fun to make, but I am not sure, if I am going to wear it, I think this top (like other Miyake's) looks good on a taller women, which I am not. I like your version very much, with the trousers. But I have to say,for a more bottom-heavy person, like me, it does not look good with pants. Thanks for your review.

I just purchased this pattern--and was kind of wondering if it would be something I would wear. Thanks to your great review and wonderful pictures I can't wait to get out and find some fabric. I always love your reviews Ann--you are an inspiration.

I love this on you Anne. And congrats for the courage to go for the "out of the norm" looks!! In the late 1950s,early 60.s when I was in my teens early 20s I used t o go for all the Vogue patterns with different challenging features! I dont seem to have the guts or the opportunities to do it nowadays! But you are so inspiring and I'm waiting to see what you make next!
