Beautiful fabric. Your top looks so comfortable. You did a great job. I have this pattern and was wondering about the neckline since I usually have to take it in or it slides down over one shoulder. I'll be sure to make the adjustment.

Looks great on you! Maybe some sort of soft ribbon could work for another sash, if this one really doesn't want to behave? Love your print placement and congratulations on sewing your first silk! Nicely done

Very cute top. I was well worth the wait.

I love to see a sewist looking so happy with a new garment. This is quite an accomplishment and is lovely. One thing you could try with the belt is to use a slide buckle, don't sew it on just feed each side through and pull. If the buckle is small enough it might hold (I've tried this and it worked for me). Glad to see your yard isn't one of those that is currently under water in TN.

Really beautiful! That lovely fabric is a perfect match to this pattern, too.

LOVE the way this turned out! MUCH nicer than mine...which has yet to be worn at all
