Nice top! Thanks for the neckband tip. I like how this top is not super full. The pattern picture looks like it might have been that way.

Love your fabric choice, it looks really pretty on you. Nicer than the pattern envelope!

This looks sooo nice! I'm kicking myself now - because I recently gave away this pattern, without ever having made it. Darn!

You should be the model on the pattern envelope!

That's about a billion times cuter on you than the pattern envelope would lead one to believe. Love it!

good use of a sheer rayon jersey, perfect pattern for it, not too much detail to fiddle with. The print is just beautiful. The way you did the neckband is the way I do them I don't know why the pattern directions have you sew it with having to stitch the facing down. The necklace is an awesome match. Mushywear you out did yourself on this simple but beautiful wardrobe must have!!!

So where did you sandwich the bottom into the yoke? I have this same fabric, so you gave me inspiration!
