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!

The color is beautiful on you. You should be proud of your lovely work!

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!!!!
