Beautiful top and the fabric is so pretty. That's a great challenge to follow up the fun you guys had at the PR Day.

Love your top. I'm waiting on this pattern to arrive in the mail. Think I'm going to use fabric purchased at PR weekend 2011 Austin! Your top is fab!

Curly26 - to raise the collar all I did was redraw the front neckline - I brought it up from the center front by about 2" from the pattern piece and gradually curved it back to the original cutting line

MNBarb - how could I have forgotten the dedication it took to get this fabric - i.e. the blizzard. LOL

I didn't see anywhere in your writing that you had to drive through a BLIZZARD to get this fine fabric! You look terrific in this top. I must have another.

Nice top, Sharon! Way to go on sewing up that fabric. Makes me feel guilty...

I love the print! A really pretty shirt!

kangafrog - Ah! Good catch. I completely forgot about that! I'm so used to having to do a FBA on everything that I completely blanked out on the raised neckline! Yes indeed, I raised it about 2" based on feedback from Lori. Now I need to correct my review!

I am one of the few people who has not yet sewn this top because we cannot buy Jalie patterns in Australia. I have ordered the pattern and washed my fabric so that I will be ready to go when the pattern arrives. Your top is really beautiful. I note that you say you did not do any alterations, but the neckline on your top looks higher than the one on the pattern envelope. Did you raise the neckline?

Beautiful top! I agree with you that it should be a best pattern for a second year.

Wow, this is wonderful, and I appreciate your review here and the info on your blog. Awesome fabric.

Don't tell me you bought the fabric yesterday and today it's a top?! Can't be! LOL! All jokes aside, great top and I do love the fabric. I hope you had a great day at the PR Brithday yesterday. :)

It IS a great pattern isn't it? I can see now why so many sew it again, and again, and again. Renren - it should be best pattern for the 2nd year!

Your top looks great. I cannot believe that I have sewn five and I am about to make a couple more. It's easy to vary the look with different fabrics, buckles etc and sleeve lengths. More short sleeved striped one looks so different from my 3/4 sleeve plain one with a large buckle carved from a shell.

Renren said...
I have not sewn it! I think yours is beautiful. Congrats on getting your new PR Day fabric sewn up so quickly. And right now there's a second review of this Jalie in the gallery--this pattern has got legs! Wonder if it will be a Best of for a 2nd year running (if they allow that).

Love your top. Perfect fabric choice. I just made my 4th version of this top. It's a favorite of mine.
