You were very creative. Love the simple detail of the buttons.

wow awesome idea to but in the center front seam and cut on the bias. A perfect fabric for this with the subtle lines. I have had this pattern for a couple of years now and have not made a thing. Now I am inspired after reading your review (and some of the others as well)

What a cute idea using the buttons that way! I just purchased this pattern and I love the idea of cutting it on the bias. Great way to showcase a nice fabric. Your work is very professional looking.

I love the details on this. They make a pretty basic pattern really stand out.

That is the most creative use for a basic pattern that I own and never got excited about. I really like your version-looks great.

I love your interpretation of this pattern with the buttons and buttonholes!! I may have to borrow this idea.

Very stylish and great fit on you. I like how you added your own touch and let your material inspire you. Very sharp!

Nice adjustments on a simple top. LOVE the button idea. .... ahem ... will definitely be stealing that one. ;)

Very cute! I love those buttons, I've used those exact ones before to make fabric hair clips. The whole top is very creative and pretty. :)
