Before reading your review I had just washed some fabric in preparation for making this shirt. Your review has really encouraged me. I also love Marcy Tilton patterns. How did the sizing of this one go? Some of her patterns have turned out a bit big. Your shirt looks great. Keep up the production line of interesting garments.

I love your jacket and agree that it looks better than the pattern picture. I really like that you show how to accessorize your review garments and show your whole outfit. You look great!

What a great looking outfit on you! And you are SO right - I wouldn't give this pattern a second look, but now I'm thinking it's a winner in the right fabric (the pattern cover is SO the wrong fabric, isn't it?) Thank you for this review! I'm curious too about the sizing - did you alter the pattern for fit at all? And what fabric did you use?

What a great jacket. I love your garments. Your version looks so much better than the pattern cover.

Thanks for the nice comments! The only change I made to my regular size 18 was to add 2" to the bodice length (above the peplum). I always do this as I am 5'10" . It is made of 100% linen (wrinkle city but still love it!)

Peggy, you are so right. This top is SO flattering and I did not expect that from looking at the pattern. Thanks for analyzing why it's such a great design. Of course I have the pattern, and now I really want to make it for spring. Thanks! (That color is especially pretty.)

I bought this at a BMV sale when it first came out. Love your rendition and the way you have it "styled".

I'm so glad you reviewed this shirt/jacket. I'm pleasantly surprised to see how nicely it drapes. Love the color you chose. Accessories are great, too!

I agree that the pattern picture doesn't do this top justice. Thanks to your great review, I think many of us will be trying it. The jacket looks great on you. Thanks for your analysis.

Your top looks great, especially with your colorful necklace. This is my kind of top. I'm moving it up to the head of the queue.
