Very flattering top and your choice of fabric shows the twist nicely.

Wow, what a great top! It looks like you could dress it up or down easily. I can feel a trip to buy this pattern coming up soon.

Your top is gorgeous. The fabric was a great choice for this pattern; it shows the lines and folds to great advantage.

Judy, your top looks great! I made the long sleeved version and it's a bit big, what size do you normally wear? I'd like mine to fit more like yours. Sue

Judy, that top looks great on you! And an hour and half to finish - wow! I have some nice rayon jersey that I've been wondering what it should become - this pattern might be it. Thanks for the thorough review.

Fabulous top Judy and it looks really nice on you. I hope it won't be too long before we experience some nicer weather.

*Blush* Thanks to everyone for the compliments! Sue, I usually make a size 8. When I made the long sleeved version, I was a bit worried about size, so made a 10, which was a little big. I could take in the sides, but the twist was still a little loose. I made another one in the size 8, and it fits much better. For me I just needed a whole size smaller everywhere, so you could try going down a size. (Always nice to go down a size! )

Now there is yet another pattern I have to buy! ;o). I did NOT like this on the model, but I see the "cute and kewl" on you. Beautiful job.
