Beautiful! I am wearing the same top in red cotton/lyrca jersey today. I just adore Jalie patterns.

You have the latest 2011 summer color and it looks so great on you.

It's so nice on you! I love the color. I have this pattern and now will have to go look at Mill End before they run out of good fleece (ha!)

I am smiling at the pictures of you smiling! I am so happy that you have a project that turned out just the way you wanted it. It looks great, and the color and fit are just beautiful.

very lovely top- the color is wonderful! And you are much too pretty to be mistaken for a man - that just really surprises me.

Darnit...I just stocked up on patterns for fleecy wintery warm things, and I passed on this one... your review is making me want to add this to the mix! What a great job, I agree the color is fantastic on you :)

This is such a great top and it looks wonderful on you and you look wonderful in it. I think I'm going to make one very soon. Hope it turns out as nice as yours!

Great top! The adjustment in the back worked perfectly. I love this color on you. Congrats!!!

This turned out PERFECT! I love the color on you too. I will have to try your swayback adjustment on my next version. I like how you've got a smooth look in the back. Can't wait to see your next version and thanks for the mention!

Thanks everyone! I was just about to enter myself into the sewing hall of shame and then, voila! a wearable garment.

I love it! This makes me want to go and make another one.

This fits your perfectly! Thanks for the great review. Someday I will sew a Jalie pattern for myself, and this one is high on my list.

Oh my gosh, no WONDER you're excited! Look at that FIT ... just like a GLOVE. It's as beautiful color on you, as well. Bravo!!! :o))

Wow, perfect slim fit! And I like the color. I'll say this is plenty feminine (; Nice deal from Mill End. I found a wonderful and dirt cheap Land's End Berber Fleece there and used it for a zippered jacket. Maybe this is a silly question...but did you take the swayback fisheye dart in the pattern piece or the garment?

This looks so great! I know what you mean about having to make "girly" clothes. I have short hair and have the same problem! I plan on making a Jalie hoodie soon. Great review!

Wow! That top looks SOO great on you! I love the fit and color!

Great job Barb! I love this pattern, I think I've made it 4 times in long sleeves and 1 sleeveless. Love that color on you!

I just discovered I have a swayback and I like your description on how you did it, I understand it. I love this on you, it fits PERFECT!!!!
