The photo came up just fine, and it looks beautiful. Wonderful fabric, and it fits you so well. Please post the photos of your other versions when you get around to them.

For me the photo is a tiny speck in the upper left corner of the page. Would love to see it. Martha

Nickle, it's not just you. I can't get the big pic to load either -- just a blank page.

The fabric choice makes the pattern look great and great on you.

The picture is great and so is the top! The fabric and the top are perfect for each other. YOu did a great job on this. I was hesitating about getting this pattern, but after looking at your success, I'll probably make the leap. Very nice.

It definitely does look like an upscale, fashionable piece. Your fabric choice looks great with this style.

Very nice! Your version looks much more fitted and flattering than the photo on the pattern envelope. I just love your fabric.

Your top is so pretty. I really like the cross-over that is higher up on the chest like this pattern. I think it's very flattering. Beautiful fabric too.

Thanks for fixing the picture. The top is gorgeous! Martha

Very cute top. This is one of my favorite patterns, too. I just finished a skirt (LH Swing) out of the exact same fabric! Wouldnt we look like twins!

Great top. Love the fabric too! I've made this once and loved it. Yours looks so nice I feel inspired to make more of these tops.

Beautiful top, I agree that yours looks better that the envelope photo. I had crossed this pattern off my list because it looks floppy on the envelope picture. I think I'll reconsider this one.

marjenann, the top looks just terrific!

Great fabric. Nice top. Not surprising that your friends like it. Personally, I think your top looks much nicer than the pattern pictures.

Beautful top. I've got the pattern and some onionskin, so, based on your excellent results, I'm going to sew this one up. You really look very lovely in your successful top.

Your top is wonderful! It looks a perfect fit. I'm curious, did you find the sleeves tight? I've heard that about other LH patterns and I have "muscular" upper arms so am alittle leery.

Wow, beautiful. I believe I have this same fabric from EOS. Did you double the fabric or line it? It looks opaque. Now I just want to get this pattern and copy everything you did!

Love the fabric. It made up very nice in this style top.

Your top is just beautiful.

Did you line this top? I was thinking of sewing something up in onionskin and wasn't sure whether to plan on lining it. Your top is gorgeous!!
