Thank you so much for the comment about being good for pears--I am always looking for that!

I can't even TELL you how many times I've eyed this pattern and considered buying it. To date, I haven't, but your tops have ALL turned out SO nicely, I'm certainly tempted. I particularly like that it fits so nicely through the upper body. :o)

I just bought this pattern today and decided to check out the reviews. I love all your versions- I wouldn't have thought to try wool jersey or velour but those versions look great. Thanks for the inspiration!

Love it, love it, love it!!! I made the version with the turtleneck and really didn't like the neckline either!!! I was going to trash this pattern but glad I saw yours!! With your simple neckline treatment, it made all the difference in the world!! Thank you so much for saving this pattern for me! Your versions are absolutely goregous!!

All your tops are great, but I especially love the 'target' top. I am drawn to black and white print anyway. You do look very good in it.

I love all your versions. The target is fantastic and very flattering. I made this pattern awhile ago and am about to publish my review. I did Marcy's neckband and think it's the most interesting feature, so I would highly recommend you try it next time.

All the tops are great and suit you very well. Very attractive.

Fabulous tops. It's great that the same pattern works so well with different fabric to create quite distinct looks.

I love your "target" top and every single other one you've made from this pattern. It's a great style for you and looks like it would flatter so many figures. I think the best compliment for a review is that it makes you want to get up immediately and head for the fabric store/pattern shop and make one for yourself -- and that's what this review did for me! Thank you -- great work!

All great tops, but the "Target" b/w is above and beyond!! I would never buy that fabric, but I'd buy your top in a heartbeat. I'll look at the large scale prints more carefully from now on.

No wonder you keep on making these - they all look fabulous on you!

I've got to make this your versions! It's in the stash--need to pull it out.

m/m, sorry, I didn't make the black top, so i can't recommend a pattern. I was in Europe for their last summer sales and bought quite a few tops from Zarah and H&M to knock off. I find their fabrics and finishing mostly very ordinary, but their styles often have that certain something, even if they are very simple.

I love these tunics on you!

Wonderful mix of fabrics and variations. Did you make the black top too? The necklines work so well together.

All your tops look terrific on you. It's a great pattern, not just for pears. I'm more hourglass and get compliments every time I wear mine. I made one for a friend who is apple shaped and it looks lovely on her too. As you say it is also very easy to vary to skirt part to get different looks.

I love all your tops! I too am sort-of pear-shaped. I keep being drawn to this pattern. I guess I'm going to have to buy it now! Thanks for the inspiring review.
