Lingerie elastic! What a great idea! (do you see the head slapping?) I'm going to use that one! I really like that print on your top...looks like high end RTW! I still grab this pattern when I want a quick knit top. BTW, another good use-up-that-last-bit-of-fabric pattern is Loes Hinse's Sweater Set Shell.

Beautiful, and so much more interesting than the one in the pattern photo.

Very pretty! It looks wonderful in the fabric you chose- far better than the pattern photo, I agree!

Lisa: Gigi is the one who gets credit for the Lingiere elastic idea, though I don't think she used it on a hem. Since I read her review of the Jaile wrap top in which she used it for the neckline stabilization I've just become enamored with the stuff.

Great top! Thanks for the review and the helpful hints. Where did you find your gorgeous fabric?

Jenifer: Welll, it was a final markdown clearance sale sort of fabric from I didn't realize when I bought it that there were 12" flowers and a 24" reapeat on it.

Thanks for the extra detail that make this a pattern to get. Without this detail, I figured it's just another shell. Maybe not! Do you think it's possible to eliminate the CF seam and still get the benefits of the pattern?

Debtro: You could certainly try the eliminate the CF seam, but it would make the self facing part harder to pull off effectively.

Yum yum top and fabric. I have this pattern but have yet to make it. Question about the lingerie that the elastic (usually white) that is scalloped on both sides that looks like lace but stretchy? Or does it look like regular elastic with some loopy trim on one side, like the kind of elastic on slips? The reason I am asking is because I am in a fabric desert here and getting such notions is often difficult.
