I love your interpretation of the material AND that you reused t-shirts! Thanks for the inspiration!

i love the abstract design created by the original top--excellent stenciling, also!

You have inspired me to go back to the book and try some new techniques. I am impressed with how innovative you are in using a printed tshirt in a new way.

I think this is an astonishing piece of work. Bravo. It's edgy, inventive, looks like it cost $400, and your hand-stitching is lovely.

Thank you for such a detailed review! You've done a beautiful job on your top and bolero. I was a little apprehensive about wearing a bolero, but you are right, it is very flattering! This is my next project!

Looks great, and the bolero DOES look perfect. Reminds me of the look of the Jalie Sweetheart top pattern, but in contrast with "removable" sleeves.

Love the incorporation of the print, red, Xs ... all of it. Looks great.

Duplicate--don't know why.

This is a really nice, graphic version of the Alabama Chanin style. I really like it, and the fit is perfect looking!

Excellent review. The corset looks wonderful with or without the bolero.
