I love your top. It looks great ~ not too much design ease - looks comfortable without being too over sized.

Great Top! Thanks for the fabric advice - I always appreciate when a reviewer tells you what the best fabric for the outfit is - I wish the pattern would do that - but that's one of the reasons we need PR!

Thanks so much for the close ups of this blouse. I love your fabric choice.

Your top is beautiful! I've been seeing this pattern all over the place lately and I'm now completely convinced I need it.

i love your top!! I have this pattern for awhile now and can't decide what material to use. Maybe I'll try silk!

What a lovely top! I just got the pattern myself and I'm on the lookout for fabric, so well-timed to see yours.

When I first saw this pattern I thought, MEH, but now I have to have it... Love your top!!

This looks great. I made this up successfully in cotton voile, agree the drape is essential. A way round the shoulder tuck matching is just to seam the shoulders first and then stitch the tucks right across - I found this easier and neater than following the instructions as given.

I think your top looks fabulous on you. Great job.

Nice Jen! I like the fabric you used with this pattern. Great combination.
Renata said... (4/23/12 1:58 AM) Reply
I have been waiting to see your version. This has been a very popular pattern and for good reason. Your version is very stylish and your seams match up perfectly, well done with such difficult fabric.
Elona said... (4/23/12 1:38 AM) Reply
What a great-looking top!
Dilliander said... (4/23/12 0:58 AM) Reply
Your top looks fabulous! I have been considering this pattern for a light cotton fabric I have but am now thinking it may be too stiff. Thanks for your review, it's really helpful. Your fabric choice is beautiful.
