As always GodsgirlT has done a beautiful job. Great fabric combination. Has real style and class. I agree with cmcarr, you are definitely an advanced sewer.

Beautiful top. I think you should change your profile from advanced beginner to ADVANCED.

Thanks to you all for the lovely comments!! @Ashford - good question...I did not have any trouble sewing with this fabric. It wasn't slippery either. The satin (weave) is less visible in this particular fabric and as a result it doesn't really have a "shiny" side. This could be part of the reason that it was such a pleasure (as opposed to a nightmare) to work with. Hope this helps!

Your fabric choice gave us a good lesson on how to look beyond the photo on the envelope. Very nice fit and style for you. As an Advanced Beginner, did you find the Charmeuse difficult to sew with? Was it slippery?

Great fabric combination (plus you clearly know what looks good on you).

I love your fabric and contrast in this top, it looks so classy, I wouldn't have even looked at this pattern until i saw your review. Really pretty on you.
