Cute the fabric and don't give that catty person another thought. It would be a pretty boring world if we all wore white, cream, or gray all the time! (You just gave me the impetus to make the black slinky fabric in my stash that has fuschia purses all over it.) Good review...sounds like you've gotten all the kinks out of this pattern.

Great t-shirt, you look really happy wearing it and that is all that counts.

I love that shirt. It's not loud, it's striking. Wear it with pride. You've almost made as many versions of this as I've made with my TNT t-shirt.

The shirt looks great! I bet the "catty" person was just jealous you looked so nice wearing the bright colors and had a top that FIT!!

You've got to be kidding. You made this top with fabric you bought THIS weekend? I didn't even know that was allowed. ;-) Looks great, and the picture makes it obvious that you enjoy wearing it. (The catty remark is a sure indication that you did something right. )

Mina, with your beautiful smile, pretty face and wonderful top I know why people enjoy looking at you. You look fantastic! Thanks for the review on the sew along top too. I'm plugging away at mine. I agree with Karla, I did not think it was allowed to sew up brand new fabric ;) . Great work, and great review, thanks.

Your shirt looks terrific - the colors are very flattering. I think bright colors are the way to go! (esp. with all of the monotonous black wearers in NYC) And this definately inspires me to start cutting into some of my own PR weekend fabric.

I love you latest verison of the t-shirt. I wish I could find more usually fabrics than what I have for t-shirts.

You have certainly been busy sewing! Nothing wrong with a few "outspoken" shirts; they are fun!

Thanks for the good words for this variation on my TNT (Tried and True - I think that is what it means?!). I don't normally sew this quickly but all those PR sewists left me inspired!

Wowzer's Mina, fantabulous...I want to make something from my NYstash too! Way to go! You are quick!

Your top looks great on you.

That neckline is flattering to you. The fabric is attractive also. Your house reflects your love of color. Don't change to be someone else.
