Thank you for the review, I am back to sewing after many years off,, I have a LOT of the LH patterns but am not certain which are still worth sewing up or passing on , yours turned out LOVELY! I understand that LH is re doing a lot of patterns for a more fitted look such as slacks, etc which is ok w/ me , I am sick of wearing jeans daily and realized I needed to change my look,,, freshen up,, so to speak, after surviving a major ( fluke) heart attack, I feel like since I have a whole new lease on life I want to do lots of things I have put off which is creating beautiful clothing for ME this time! Since I( currently) live in a cold state, this top could be used for many a cozy sweater that is just a bit more upscale than a typical LE drifter ( daily wear here) Oh how I want to get RID of many tbings now! what I do love about LH patterns is that one can build on them, which is what I am trying to do, so this review helped me a LOT! thanks for your time, and your top looks lovely on you! I very much enjoyed viewing your travels on your blog, DH and I are RVing a lot,,,,love love love it! Enjoy your travel time!

I love the top and scarf-looks pretty on you. This type of top and scarf is the sort of thing I like wearing-nice to hear it is a good way to ease back into sewing as I will need to ease back also after being away from the machines-great set.

The fabric really makes the top. It's the biggest challenge with sewing. You really had success with this one.

Good to see you here again Peggy - you have been missed. Love your top - looks classy and elegant - just right for a sixty and single lady

Peggy, you look just beautiful in your new made top with scarf tied just so! The fabric is lovely, as is the style of the top on you. I also think this was a perfect top to segue back into your sewing. I loved all the pics and found a bit of Middle TN foliage on your site, also. That scenery contrasts so nicely with your pics of the west coast.

Beautiful jump start back into fun sewing! Love the color and you wear the scarf well! I always look I have a noose around my neck! ;>)

A nice top. I've just acquired this pattern myself and I'm looking forward to trying it.

Very classy top; love the fabric. This pattern is a TNT for me and yet I forget about it from time to time. Need to drag it out again. And -- wasn't sewing it more fun than draperies?

CONGRATULATIONS on Review No. 100, first of all! I LOVE your top, as it has JUST the right amount of body and fits you to a tee. The COLOR is BEAUTIFUL on you. I'm PEA GREEN -- ha! :O) I think I'd better check out the scarf section next time I'm in a Target. :o)

Welcome back, Peggy!! That is such a sophisticated fabric and great color -- it's not surprising that it's perfect for Loes Hinse's simple but sophisticated design. I really like her style and you wear it well. I like the scarf, too! Yay!
