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!

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.
