I love this. I am completely enamoured with your creation! This pattern is so freakin close to the inspiration that I must hunt down this pattern and make my own plaid version. Thank you for your detailed review.

This is absolutely adorable! You fit yourself so well, and the plaid fabric is completely perfect for this top--it looks SO much better than the picture on the pattern, I would not have looked twice at this. Well done!

This is adorable! I love the plaid, and it would be cute as a vest too when it gets a little colder. Oh, your buttons are awesome too...I want this top! :)

Fantastic top on you. I competely overlooked this pattern so it is great to see it here and the designer inspiration that Vogue knocked off. Love it.

Fabulous top! I think yours is so much better than VW's. Yours makes the VW look like the knock-off. :) Also well done on matching thoses plaids so perfectly.

Terrific, unique shirt! Looks very well made and you did a great translation of it in the plaid.

Love love love this on you. I like it even better than the Vivienne Westwood ones - your plaid is fabulous. Great work on a versatile, funky, and overall awesome top!

Amazing! Your modifications make the garment completely couture. Great work, especially in use of the plaid!
