This really looks great on you. I mean it. Just so nice.

Yet ANOTHER winner! And, YES, I recently bought this pattern and am awaiting its arrival. If mine looks half as cute as yours, I'll be a happy camper. :o) Good to know about the low neckline, too.

Love to see you twirling. Love your top. Whenever I am home long enough to get to some sewing I want to make a top just like yours.

This pattern is in my stash and after your review will be moving up close to the top of the pile of projects. Your twirling picture shows it will be perfect for dancing. Thanks for all the helpful tips -- I'll know what to watch for once I start the project.

I love your beautiful top. The fabric, style, fit - all really nice. Your necklace is perfect to complete the look. Great job!

Thanks for posting this review. I just bought this one in the last sale thinking it had great potential and I see that it does. Keep taking those twirling shots, I love those.

Thanks so much for all your comments! @Mary Ann, I am wearing this with my Sewing Workshop Trios (sans pocket), but I think any pant that fits somewhat through the thighs. If the top lands on really wide pants, I think it is less flattering than if the top lands on a more fitted pant.

Great version of this top! I love the fabric and the way you combined it wit the black mesh. I made this pattern in white with short sleeves and it was an utter disappointment. Your choice of fabric and styling is a whole order of magnitude better.

I love your top, especially with that necklace! I usually only read reviews for patterns I want to make, but your picture stopped me in my tracks and I had to see more :)

Top looks great on you. What pant style works best with this top? Do you have an opionion?

Glad to see your review. I just put together the fabric and pattern for my version of it. Your tips will come in handy. I love your fabric. The top looks great on you. Very flattering.

Sharon, as usual you have created a masterpiece! Love it!

Love it on you. Glad you're living it up and twirling in your new top. All of your changes made this a better garment.

Love the 'twirl' picture! I can really see the top that way! I'm with you on the raw edges! Great top, already in my pattern stash!

Wow, as always, coloring outside the lines--and very prettily!
