Look at you. The same fabric as the pattern. Great job and it looks very nice on you.

I'll have to give this a go, your top is very cute! Thanks for the heads up on the neckline issue.

Your top looks great. Horizontal lines are just your imagination! I would like to make this top and I'll remember to tighten up the wide neckline. I might try a 12 instead of 14 too!

I have this sitting waiting to be made up. I'm going to turn it into a dress. I will try it as you suggested and go down a size. Nora :)

What a fun top. I made the same fabric into a color blocked dress. Its great to see how you used your stash fabric.
