This shirt is awesome! Those stripes are terrific. It looks great on you.

I think it looks fantastic on you. Very flattering and beautifully sewn - looks like RTW. It doesn't look like there's too much drape to me, but maybe a different view would show it more. Personally, I like a lot of drape so that it doesn't cling to my tummy ;-)

Oh, so glad I've found your vh review. I keep checking this pattern out. Now I must make it!

Interesting that you left out the top stitching. I've put it in my half finished top but the jury is still out

It is SO good to see a review from you, and you posted it on my BIRTHDAY, too! (Of course, I MISSED it at the time, but STILL.) What a wonderful use of your striped fabrics for this top, and I think the fit is SPOT ON. :o)

Your top looks great. Glad to see your review. Mine became a wadder - was made from very drapey fabric and it still had far to much flare.

Welcome back to reviewing! Neat that you had a very similar fabric to the envelope model to try out. Looks comfy!

I love your stripe top, including the flare at the bottom. Great top!

Awesome job of stripe placement - it makes this top very special :)

Those stripes and the generally neat fit make it a really snazzy top. I hope you either get the flare under control or get to like it.

Excellent job on the positioning of those stripes

I have this pattern and have wondered about it. Your version with the stripes is very cute! I don't want a lot of flare at the bottom so if I ever make this I will heed your review and opinion. Thanks.
