I love your conclusion: "Quick and easy top turned out better than it deserved to." It turned out beautifully - very pretty fabric; so glad you were able to tame it.

This top looks wonderful -- any problems with the fabric really don't show. Love the print!

Cute top from an overlooked (by me) pattern. That kind of fabric is so aggravating, I hope your DD is suitably appreciative!

Despite all the trouble you had with the fabric this looks really nice - am sure your DD will use this

The drape on the neck is beautiful, looks like a great top. Interesting to know how big it runs, I also have this pattern in my stash...hmmmm

Great looking top! When I looked at this fabric and your top, I absolutely had to read your review. I am amazed at how well the hems look in this fabric. You are right, this fabric is crazy to work with. You must have done some wonderful pinning.
