Thanks, everyone! Clare, I agree the fabric is certainly not ugly! It wasn't something I would've thought to pick out for myself either, but it's definitely grown on me. Thanks for bringing it to the fabric swap!

Fabulous t-shirt, and hard to believe that you received it in an ugly fabric swap, you've really done wonders with it.

Excellent review! I love what you have done in morphing the patterns and using both sides of the fabric. Your top looks great!

What a helpful review of your interesting knit top. Great job of morphing and I think it looks great on you. It's good to step outside our comfort zones.

Wow Margaret, that was quick. I still have family around so haven't sewn since Brussels. I did say that the fabric was only 'ugly' in that it wasn't for me. You have made a fantastic garment - well done. Clare

You made good use of this "ugly" fabric, what a pretty top. The idea of the seam in the back and using both sides of the fabric is very clever!

Renren! Hehehee--"Fabric Torture Chamber"

Wow, love that fabric and glad you stepped out of your usual boundaries on this "ugly" (not!) fabric. Great thing using front/back of this unique fabric. and thanks for all the 80%/85%/90% talk with the bands/bindings. I must keep things like that in mind, she says, rubbing her hands together and heading back to the Fabric Torture Chamber. Great review, as usual!

I think this might be a European first! Someone actually used their ugly fabric for a garment they would really wear!!! And so quickly! It does look really good!

"Brussels PR weekend"... How COOL!!! Really neat, interesting & sexy top, Margaret ;)

Oh.... love the fabric. You did a great job on combining the two patterns into a nice fitting top. Love the adaptation of the back - and changing the yoke fabric to the other side to make it look like a design feature.

A really cute top. The fabric is wild!
