Lovely smart top

Placement on your fabric is great. This makes a very striking top. I think as a whole it looks better without the top flaps, but with that print, the top flaps would have ruined a stunning effect.

WOW Your fabric choice really fits the safari look without being overly jungle! Fab look for summer and wonderful detailing.. right down to the unique buttons. I am sure you will receive many compliments and 'where'd you buy that's' when you are wearing it.

What a lovely shaped top . You look great in this outfit ( as always) . I agree with you leaving the top flaps off this top in this print . You have made a really fab outfit combining these two patterns.

I have been looking at this top in the mag, trying to decide if I was too old (40 something) but seeing it a "real person" not a model has now convinced me I should go for it! thanks for posting

The outfit looks great on you! I am in the middle of making this with pants in the matching fabric. I just love their obscure notes about pattern pieces, don't you?

I love your fabric choice and like the top with matching skirt, although it'd looking smashing with white jeans or Bermudas.

Love this!!! I've been eyeing this one and am so glad to see your review. It looked a little short-waisted in the mag, but it looks just right on you. Awesome top w/ awesome attention to detail!
