Your shameless copying is something I'm going to shamelessly copy! Love it, love it, love it.

This is my favorite PR garment this year! Your perfect matching of the stripes brings the top to the level of international designer quality.

It is great to see two really different versions of this top appear, clearly it's very versatile and looks great in both versions!

Very striking with the black stripes. Looks like an awesome top. Thanks for posting.

This is absolutely fabulous. And the choice of a striped fabric was genius. LOVE IT !

The fit is fantastic mnitts. The only thing I will do on the next one is take a little wedge from the collar center back seam. It could be a bit more snug to keep the stripes nice and straight.

mnitts said...
Looks fab. How is the fit? As good as they promise? You will have to post a picture of yourself modelling it :-)

Copy away ArtAttack! You know what they say about imitation.... Re Becca, it really isn't complicated at all but if you get stuck feel free to PM me.

ArtAttack said...
This is a show-stopper! I think I must shamelessly copy you! Too cute!

That looks absolutely incredible. I can't work out how it goes together from your picture. Love your version :)

Re Becca said...
OK, that is just too cute! Lekala huh? I may have to jump on the bandwagon for this one. You said this was easy to make, it looks really complicated.
