I love this top! I like the contrast of the wrong and right sides of the fabric that you used, it looks more creative and luxurious than just one side. Nice job!

Ann, I look forward to your reviews. Your top looks great on you, as do all your fashions.

Ann, You come up with the neatest ideas. love this top on you. Shortening these tops sometimes really makes all the difference. And, of course the use of both sides of the fabric was brilliant!

Wow Ann, what a beautiful top. I love how you combined the two fabrics using more of the matte fabric and less of the shiny one. The length makes a nicely slenderizing look on you.

Excellent use of a dramatic fabric. Glad you shortened the top. That banded tunic thing would require a skinny body and long legs to look good, IMO. Edgy, quirky, cool, and so you!

You've made a lovely top,much classier than the pattern envelope.

You have every reason to be happy. This top turned out fabulous. I love the combination of the two sides. Now I want to make it. Do you have any leftover fabric? :-)

So pretty! Ingenious idea to use both sides of your fabric to your advantage. You always look so pulled-together!

Gorgeous top!

This is a really cool top. Using the wrong side of the fabric to tone it down and the right side for contrast bands is really clever.
