Thank you for a very helpful review. Great result -- your tank is gorgeous. I've had this pattern for eons, but never used it. Putting it on top of the list now . . . .

Gorgeous top and great review. You'll be responsible for a lot of these patterns from KS being sold this year.

You have done the nearly impossible - made a ruffly top w/ a feminine fabric so appealing to me that I actually want it! You brought everything together so perfectly - fantastic job! And thank you for such a helpful review!

This is lovely, and thanks for the instructions on how you did the lining.

Thanks for all the great information. Those are some great tips especially making two, and stabilizing for the ruffle. It really looks cute

Looks really great! You're so right about the KS drawings, ho, hum. Your garments always look professionally made.

What a beautiful top! I love the way you incorporated the ruffles by combining patterns--a great touch!

Great morphing of patterns. I want to try this pattern, using your lining instructions, but I don't understand this sentence in your review: Folded the lining inside, wrong side together, then bound the neck and armholes. So the lining isn't bound? Is it held in place by the stitching of the ruffles? Sorry to be so dense -- but I have some nice, thin knits. Maybe I should add that I probably won't do the ruffles, though I like them on yours.

I really love tanks as layering pieces and this is the ultimate beautiful one. I hope I can duplicate how you did the lining as it would make some of my thin knits work for shells if they were lined. I have lined lots of things before but only patterns that had directions and lining pattern pieces included. I definitely plan to try a lined tank in the future after seeing yours. It is fabulous.

Beautiful! I love what you did to this plain tank pattern. I'll bet more people will follow your example after seeing your success!
