By the way, beautiful top!

I made this top and will be making it again. My review to come soon; but, I wanted to say, I agree with the statement of not being use to leaving the neckline and sleeves unfinished. I will probably finish the next time and omit bottom band.

Another cute top. It works well with that fabric, and I like it better than the envelope version.

You made that in an hour??? Well, really nice especially with the fine tuning for a great and flattering fit. I like the simple style that showcases the beautiful design print of fabric.

I have done so good lately (stayed on my pattern diet like a good girl) after my falling off my pattern diet a couple of months back. Then yesterday I saw the new McCall's "Generation T" and "Generation Next" patterns and thought, "Oh, no..... I am going to NEED a couple of those patterns." Well, now you post your review and are the downfall of my pattern diet! I love your new top and will have to get this pattern and also 6288! It is a lovely top and showcases your fabric so nicely. Great review!
