I love your top - I hope you have gotten a ton of use out of it because it looks fabulous on you!

I love it. I think it is a great style on you. I think the bagginess you feel might just be the wearing ease. I think you look slim and wonderful in it. I agree with you about the shoulders and arm. You could probably use to go a size smaller in that area.

Thanks so much everyone! I considered making the bell bottom pants from this pattern too, Pinky, but I just couldn't see myself wearing them much, lol. Don't worry, most of remember the 70's at least a little. :) I was at least alive when this pattern was made!

I love this. I think it's way better on you than the pattern drawing. Seriously, this is just a wonderful little topper that looks super with your jeans.

Love it! And I really like the cropped back. You did a great job of lining up the flowers so they look like they flow from one side to the other on the front. Looking forward to seeing some photos of you wearing the jacket.

This is so pretty, and I can see all how it would complement your coloring. Super cute back also.
