Such a beautiful top! I have never given this top a second glance, but the seaming detail is so pretty.

Thanks ladies for all the lovely comments! The necklace was a present from DH for a recent 'big' birthday so I was pleased to find it suits this top very well. Freya, thanks for the tip about spray starch.

The perfect fabric choice on this top showcases this unique pattern! Well done!

You may have just caused a selling spree of this pattern. What a lovely, breezy, loose fitting-but not shapeless top. Just looking at the fabric scares me. You were brave and extremely successful with this selection. I love it with the dangly necklace. I want one!

Fantastic top! I would wear that in a second; it looks like my kind of thing. How silly of Vogue to not use a solid color to show off that interesting seaming! It looks outstanding on you and I love it with that gorgeous necklace. Perfect!

I love the white. Beautiful job. I was planning to make it in white linen, so nice to see it done up. Beautiful top!

A great top; stylish, distinctive and elegant yet casual, too. To make a slippery fabric more manageable when cutting out and sewing, try spraying it with spray starch (enough to dampen it but not saturate it), then iron it. You might need to repeat the treatment later while sewing as the effect wears off with handling.

This is the best version of this top yet. Worth all the PITA moments.

wow, I really love your version. I never considered the pattern but now I have put it on the wishlist. The sheer fabric really does highlight the special details of the seamlines. Great work and great review.

The fit on this version is perfect! You did a beautiful job. Just gorgeous!

Just lovely!

cute....i love that you let the seam lines give this top its definition rather than using a busy print.

This looks fabulous on you!

Gorgeous! I love it in the sheer white. I never noticed the detail on this top until now...thanks for a thorough and informative review!

I like that a lot. Very elegant in white crepe de chine.

Both tops are so different but very pretty. Great job working with slippery fabrics.

This looks just great on you! Now I want one:-)

Love the white version, I have never noticed the seaming detail in this pattern and your fabric is the perfect choice!
Dilliander said... (5/6/12 8:00 AM) Reply
Both your tops are lovely. Definitely worth the effort you put in with the slippery silk fabrics.

Such a pretty top! You did such a great job sewing those seams in such a slippery fabric.

This is just so lovely! Much nicer than the pattern envelope. The seamlines are highlighted beautifully by using the sheer fabric, so all your hard work was worth it!
