Absolutely fabulous. You are very clever, and this would have been time consuming, so you must also have patience.

How nice to sew an embellishment that doesn't tale an expensive machine, just a good eye. It's wonderful and so perfect for the top.

Sue I really like your top and the embellishments. It's amazing what a little extra can do to a top. It's also interesting that you 'made it right out of the envelope' and it worked. That's what I plan to do too. A few of the other reviewers have raised the neckline saying it's too low cut but I think that alters the look entirely and then isn't as flattering over the bust. It doesn't look too low at all and is really lovely on you. (I know this is personal taste though.) The colour really suits you too.
