How clever of you to split the front and back - it really works, and the asymetric hem really suits it (and you!) Love the fabric mix on the black and white top. Many thanks for the tips on your blog too.

Thank you for the detailed blog post,especially the discussion of constructing the collar. I'm almost done sewing my T, but the number of layers in the collar is daunting and I needed to read up on how others handled it. Sounds like I just need to sew carefully to avoid puckers. Thanks again!

Ooh, that is a nice collar - I hadn't noticed it on the pattern picture. Your version looks great.

Both tops are fabulous. I particularly love the black and white version. I didn't look closely enough at this pattern when it came out, but now I will definitely have to get it. Love your hair.

Your tops looks great on you. I like the blend of fabric patterns on it. Your review is very helpful, particularly the photos that show how the zippers are used. I can see how you would want soft zippers with no bends in them. It would look edgier with the chunky steel teeth, but comfort must prevail.

Totally love your tops & your informative review! This is my next project...if I EVER finish Fault Line jacket!! When sewing knits I use a thin wooden skewer. Lay it on your stitch line right in front of the needle. Apply gentle beautifully for me. I break the skewer so it is about 6" long.

I just put a load of knit scraps in my scrap drawer; maybe they need to re-emerge! Great tops.

I just finished this yesterday and hope to post a review soon. Same experience, you need two zippers, and there is only one view..... good pattern for using up beautiful remnants under a yard! Your top looks great, I love the pieced fabrics!

Fabulous! Love the B/W version - much nicer than the models' - there's lots of scope for creative piecing with this pattern. You did a great job!

I've had my eye on this pattern since it came out, and now after seeing the collar up close, I want it even more. The next time it goes on sale, it is coming to mama!

Wow, this is great and may I say, you didn't waste any time sewing this one up--it just came out! You have convinced me to buy it (on the next sale!) Noticed a few $32 patterns in the new Vogue book!

Me, too! They are such fun and flattering tops. And what a great use of remnants.

Sweet! Your review is so helpful and your tops are too cute. I have quite a lot of knit scraps myself.
