Great review and such pretty tops. I have a "thing" about twist tops - love them - and the asymmetric twist on the twist is very nice. Love the colours too.

Just how stylish can you get for a biking top?! Fabulous! Love the color on you, love the pattern - great review! And btw, I think the sleeve shape is perfect on your body as is - it really balances you out nicely. Darn....another pattern I want!

This is why I love PR: All the creative problem solving that goes on here. What a great idea to use technical fabric to make a stylish pattern into a bike shirt! I actually think it would add to your safety on the biking tour to wear something to increase your visibility to cars. So go ahead and make the shirts as wild as you REALLY want. :D

A really cute top. That blue is wonderful, and very similar to a shade called Gitane bleu (after the cigarettes) that was fashionable in the winter of 1979.

Great job! I have this pattern and checked out the reviews to give me a heads-up on potential problems. Thanks for giving your instructions; this will help me out a great deal when I make it.

Thanks, your whole review is very helpful and your tops look great. I'm part-way through making a toile of this pattern. Should have searched Pattern Review before I started:-)

These look great on you. I love the blue version the most. The twist looks fab, might get the pattern and try your method of finishing!

Beautiful tops! They look so much better than in the envelope drawings. And that means that I'll have to add another item to my wish list... :-)

Very cute! And the alternative finishing method sounds much more sane...

They look great! Both look terrific on you, and yes, very au courant! I have this pattern but haven't tried it because of the double layer thing. Your tips will be really helpful!
