I love that top! Great job!! Unfortunately, being in Canada, it would cost me a fortune for that pattern! I'll have to play around and see if I can make one without :o)

Very flattering top on you. And looks so nice at the length and with the belt. Nice job.

Your top is just gorgeous! It's good to see that the belt looks great with it, as I am always afraid that wearing a belt over a tunic will make the waist look bulkier.

So cute! I really like the tunic length with the belt, nice job.

I want this pattern ....... so cute! I love your fabric choice - it's really nice. The style is perfect for you!

I've always been attracted to this pattern but pretty sure it won't work for me. But I think it is the perfect match for you and it is beautifully styled. This may be one of the best renditions I've seen! Beautiful and thanks for the link to Pam Erny's site, where two other fabulous versions of the Weekender Sunshine top are shown.
