Absolutely perfect. This should be the pattern envelope picture. I looked at this pattern and did not like I MUST have. Thank you

Love your airy top. Great way to use stripes but not overwhelm.

Lovely! You did a great job, your review will help me, I have this pattern, the princess seams caught my eye. I love how you used your fabrics. Better than RTW Anthro.

I love your choice of fabric. Your creativity in putting these fabrics together makes the shirt better than the pattern picture.

Thanks everyone:) This really was a fun project. I couldn't believe I found all three fabrics wadded in my remnant bin! I'm not sure if I'd "planned" it I would have had the same happy result! I forgot to add in the review that I did make my usual broad and forward shoulder adjustment, plus added to the length (the pattern is quite short)... but I always make those adjustments.

What can I say that hasn't been said already - I am in love with this top - it is absolutely gorgeous. Just swore off buying any more patterns and then along comes this one which I had passed over - sigh! GREAT FIRST REVIEW - THANKS

Fabulous!!! You ought to send a photo to Katherine - I'm certain she would love to see your version. The tone-on-tone sheer is beyond beautiful. You must have one wonderful remnant bin!!!
