So great to see another fabulous entry from you. I look forward to your reviews, and enjoy seeing what you have made. I'm always inspired!

Thanks, Dorothy. I'll have to see if there are shortening lines on the pattern or if the place to shorten it is obvious, if not.

Diane in Boston: I don't see why you couldn't make it shorter by several inches.

Adorable, I hadn't considered using a two-sided fabric but yours gives me food for thought. I automatically get the SW patterns and can hardly wait to make one for myself.

Very nice! I just bought this pattern and am planning to make it soon. I'm wondering, though, whether you think it could be successfully shortened. It's longer than I prefer to wear my tops especially at the sides. Do you think this would work?

Great use of the double sided fabric. I must try this pattern too.

Dorothy, your top is so artistic and fun looking. How clever to use that great fabric in the way that you did and what a nice fit you achieved. Super job!

So glad to see a review of this pattern -- it's on the 'consideration list.' Yours is great and I love your fabric. Should be fun to wear!

Love it!!! What a great use of that two-sided fabric. I especially love it with those zippered pants. :)

I just bought this pattern so really appreciate seeing it made up. Love your choice of fabrics. It looks like a fun tunic to wear. Thanks.
