Really, really cute. I like it better with a flatter front too.

Beautiful job. I love the color. Did you have to do an FBA on this?

Very nice looking top! Fits wonderful...thankd for the great review. Convinced me to add this pattern to my list of "must buys!"

Yours is better! I like your change to the lower front enough to buy the pattern.

Beautiful! I've been planning to make this one, too. That lower bodice pocket has me confused though - it seems like it is integrated into the front in a weird way. I'm definitely going to give it a try though. Yours is great!

Wow, I really love it! I would not have bought it based on the line drawing, but your removal of the pockets makes all the difference! wtg!

I love those sleeves. I just bought several Project Runway patterns yesterday at a pattern sale. I wish I had seen your review, I would have bought this one too! Lovely color .... looks very nice on you.

That looks so great on you. I love the sleeves! Somehow I never noticed them, even though I had looked at this pattern before.

Very nice on you, I also LOVE the sleeves!

You look lovely in this top. Makes me want to buy the pattern. After seeing your photos, I agree it could be made into a really nice dress also.

This top looks so cute on you, Allie. I think it was a wise move to eliminate the gathers on the lower bodice.

The style and colour look spectacular on you. I know spectacular is a strong word for a t-shirt, but you look stunning!

Excellent pattern/fabric choice! Your top is a real stand-out.

Good move eliminating the pockets and gathers from the front and lengthening which is exactly what needs to be done to give this top less of a teeny bopper look. Thanks for figuring this out as I have wanted to make this top for awhile but just couldn't figure out what was 'wrong' with it. By the way, your craftsmanship and the way it looks on you is fabulous.
