I like your version very much. I have this pattern on my wish list, if nothing else to check out the techniques. I agree, the top looks good on you.

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.

*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! )

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

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.

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

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

Judy that looks great on you. I LOVE the fabric! It's so funny - I'm just about to make this top for the contest in the long sleeve version for winter here in Boston! -Ann

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.
