Wow! I need to make an effort to be more imaginative. Your versions are so clever and no one would even think they were the same pattern (not that it would matter if they did). Great job and they are all so beautifully sewn.

Oh my! those are cute tops. I'm thrilled I have this pattern. It's in my pile for next month's contest.

I love everyone of these shirts especially the one with the lace! Your ideas got my ole brain synapses a firing, especially the ones when you repurposed fabric garments found at Goodwill and Walmart. A major problem I have is finding fabric I want to sew. You have done so, and at such a reasonable cost!

Wow, so many cute tops out of one pattern. You were so creative and it has really paid off!

I love this pattern, have made up the cowl but enjoyed seeing all your versions made from it. I cut my cowl pattern and decided I liked it so much bought another one just to keep all the sizes on it. Excellent review of the pattern. What I thought was strange about this pattern was it needs a knit but still tells you to cut the cowl on the bias? How did you do yours?

Great looking tops (and dress)! You went above and beyond with creativity! I would have never imagine these being made from the same pattern. You chose some great fabrics as well.

Wow, this is a serious inspiration for me to try this pattern that I have in stash but wasn't sure about. Super tops!

Lovely selection! I particularly love the stretch lace version. Such a good idea!

You are brilliant and amazing - I can't pick a favorite, but you sure have inspired me. I have had this pattern in my stash since it came out last fall - looks like I'll be pulling this out for the pattern stash contest.

Wow - and how did you manage so much in a state of sleep deprivation, I ask? :-) Nice tops - perfect price.
