Very cool top, I love it with your lime pants.

I'm so glad I came back for another look at this review...that front band process had me wondering and as I was sewing BOTH bits together in the final run, thought I would have another look!! The light bulb came on when you mentioned the word 'flap'!! Out with the undoer implement! Love your colour combo.

Oh! You've posted some reviews lately that I managed to miss until now. I LOVE LOVE this top on you. I love how you've styled it with the chartreuse capris. Question - the dart almost appears to be part of the pleats. Is that possible? Anyway, I've been thinking of making this for myself, but I don't know if it will look nearly as good on me.

What a great top, I'm also heading into spring/summer & tropical at that so this one will defiately be a winner. I love the colour of your cotton and have something similar in my stash.

This looks very nice on you and looks well sewn.

I like this top, esp in this fabric. I tend to avoid asymmetric hems, but I might have to try this one.

I can always count on you to make and review a funky style with asymmetry. A very cool tunic that looks terrific on you!

Your tunic turned out beautifully! So pretty in that 1988 cotton embroidered piece. How many more pretty purples do you have stashed away? I too have this pattern and look forward to trying one of the views. Great job!

Great tunic! I've had my eye on this pattern and will have to put it on the list now.

This pattern is a nice variation of the tunic style. I like the way it looks on you. Given your interest in pockets lately, I won't be surprised if you make View B at some point. I think View D is interesting also. I never would have noticed this pattern if you hadn't brought it to my intention. Glad to see some of that stash being used :-)

This top is just made for you. and your color choices are lovely. The fabric (1988!) is wonderful.

A highly original and stylish top, just the thing for summer. I love the fabric!

Brilliant top that really suits you - and the first review of this pattern. We are just heading into our Spring/Summer season 'Down Under' so this will definitely be a winner in the 'cool to wear' category. Thanks for the review :)
