Looks great on you and the placement of the border print is excellent! This one will have to go on my 'to-do' list (I'm always on the lookout for flattering plus-sized patterns).

You did an amazing job with the border! The layout, fabric, and pattern style is very pretty on you! Nice job.

Great top Melody! I love seeing how other people use border fabrics. I find them a challenge to work with.

Wow, this looks like an expensive designer item. Great fabric choice! And I think I like it better with fewer gathers. :)

Fabulous top! I liked this in the magazine, but knew I'd have to raise the neckline significantly...but wasn't sure how that would look. However, I see that it looks great on you!

This is a very flattering top. I love the way you used the borders on the fabric and the gathers turned out really nice.
