Very nice and I also am one who thought this would be only for the kids! Nice job! Love your drawing with the actual garment!

I have this top on my list of things I want to sew from the issue. Thanks so much for your review. I like that you were able to use a mesh knit and have it turn out so nice ..... very pretty in your fabric choice.

Can't believe you've already sewed this one up. It turned out great and I like the back neckline treatment.

Cute - I just recieved this magazine and was wondering what this would be like - lovely work!

A cute top, and I love the fabric.

I like it in the mesh -- not too poofy and more sophisticated, as ClaireEmily says. I really like how the pattern underlayer shows through a little too.

Wow! I really like your top. When I first saw that pattern I thought that it would be too young and 80s for me, but your version is quite sophisticated. I might have to try it now =) (and man you are quick off the mark - this magazine hit my letterbox about 3 days ago!)

Your pic is small, but from what I can see, it looks really cute! Thanks for the tips on sizing and fabric requirements, very helpful for when I get around to making this. Great review!
