I love what you did with this top. I am working on it myself right now and finding the instructions a little bit confusing and the fit around the hip is way too tight, even though I measured twice and am using the right size. I also barely had enough fabric, even though I bought two yards vs the 1 and a half it called for. This is my first time working with a knit, I hope it turns out okay. I'm going to have to piece fabric into the sides so it fits right. Next time I guess I will add a little more to the hip area. Thanks for the review! Your top looks fabulous with your chosen fabric.

Nice top! I love your fabric choice and the pattern placement of the fabric, especially on the back. I just might have to add this one to my stash!

Lovely top. I'd have never thought to use a large patterned fabric but it works really well.
