So cute! I really like the piping instead of the zips.

I love this shirt!! I was reading a review on the same shirt earlier this morning and decided I didn't like the zipper accents because of the possibility of my hair being pulled. The piping is a great improvement and provides an interesting splash of color, drawing the eye to the face. This idea I may steal.

Very cute! Thanks for the tip on the sizing. Sounds like you went down approximately 2 sizes. I may use your idea of starting with a TNT tshirt pattern.

Great job!! Love your pipings..if they are caught in your hair, just think what the zips would do! Very attractive top!

Interesting about the zip coil at the neckline--I recently saw one in RTW. I like the piping you've chosen to use and agree with keeping to one fabric (as opposed to the contrasting fabric shown on the envelope) due mainly to this interesting fabric which should have no competition as it deserves to be showcased. I'm not sure what it is about some of these artistic flairs/touches Marcy Tilton and Sandra Betzina use--but they would look like mistakes on me. Not sure if that's about being shorter though as I'm 5'5". Another great top for you to finish up the southern hemisphere winter.

The contrast piping works beautifully with this fabric, a lovely top!

Great use of the piping - I like the zip trim but this with the matching colours looks great!

Stunning top, I love your change to piping at the neckline. Good idea to incorporate that into your t-shirt template.
