you really made a fabulous top looking so different from the other one, they both have their place in your wardrobe.

Wow, what a difference with a softer knit. The pockets look fabulous. Cute top!

The new version does look softer and more comfortable than the stripe. Great color, too.

I think you look GREAT in this top, especially with the way you've engineered the stripes. (I just ordered this pattern last night ... was kind of thinking of making it without the bottom part, but we'll see).

I think it's quite flattering on you! You make all garments look fabulous -- no doubt about it!

Apologies for the double post.

Very nice top. Great layering piece. I like the way you used the stripes for this pattern. Add interest. In my opinion it looks great on you. I'm sure you will get a lot of compliments when you wear it.

Ann I really do not think this is unflattering in any way - I really like it - the stripes add a lot to the design. It is a looser fit and may take you time to get used to it but please wear it a lot - it looks very fashionable and at the same time comfy.

Well, if you think of it for layering and warmth, this is absolutely fabulous as the comfortable outer layer with generous fit for easy on and off. Nice job on the stripe placement which creates an interesting contrast.

I think this look has a lot of pizzazz and looks great on you. Running the stripes vertically in the hip area adds a lot of style and is very flattering.

I really really love this. It looks fun and comfortable.

Ann -- This is honest feedback -- It looks very good to me, a looser style, so maybe you just aren't used to the look. I happen to love it, and what you did with the stripes.

I don't think it looks boxy. I like it. I like what you did with the stripes. Looks like a top you can get a lot of wear out of.

Ann, I really like the look on you, but you might like it better if you used a solid color. Love your style and you hair looks great! Nora :)
