Super cute. Nice job. Whether intentional or not the one with the mandalas all over is very figure enhancing/slimming - but, they both look great and flatter. Bert

Wow! These look great on you and the fabrics change the look of each one. If I had to pic a fav, it would be the last. They all are great though.

That neckline is very flattering and slimming. Looks great on you As for neckline bands, I would suggest you do an internet search as you will find step by step instructions on various techniques. I use a coverstitch to do this to get a very professional looking band but before I had it, I would do the "Threads" technique. Just go to Threads mag and look it up. It's a video format and you'll learn alot.

Three great tops! It is always interesting to see how different the same pattern can be with different fabric. I particularly like the third version.

I made this pattern in '73 or '74 for a friend and I loved it! I made the long version, just like the picture, for her to wear to a high school winter dance. Your choice of prints is fantastic, very retro yet modern at the same time. The skirt of the dress pattern flares beautifully, so try it in a dress length too!

Thanks for the feedback! I'm thinking of adding a narrow neckband for a smoother finish. What's the best method?

Three wonderfully wild and snazzy tops.

Your top is lovely, fabric is great and it looks terrific on you. A suggestion only and that is, the next time you make this up, using a print fabric, would you consider placing the front bodice on the fold? I think its worth a try, especially on prints. Regardless, you are lucky to have found a pattern which really likes you. Go Girl!!

I really love your fabric choices. The long sleeve blue one is my favorite. This style looks great on you. I have many of these Jiffy patterns in my storage boxes. Maybe I should look at them again. Great job on salvaging your UFO dress, too.

All of your tops look so good! I love the name of "petallica"!

You've found a winner here! This pattern can be used over and over and will look fresh as you showcase different fabric 'personalities.' These are all very flattering on you!

Wonderful fit and great fabrics on all three tops. Way to go on eliminating the UFO and de-stashing!

Gorgeous fabrics and very flattering design. A great save from your unfortunate dress project. Surely three stellar successes blur one minor disappointment!

What a great ending to your bad experience with the UFO! All three tops are so pretty on you!

Each of the three tops is perfect for you. I especially love the neckline and shaping in the sides.
