The flower placement is fine. You made that with only a yard of fabric? Hmm. Good information.

Jensews, I guess it is like lingerie stretch elastic. It has a decorative picot edge on one side.

Ann, I look forward to your reviews because you have such a wonderful style and an eye for fabric + pattern nirvana. Love the sleeves on your recent version.

What lovely tops. This is another pattern for my wishlist. Thank you

Ann, love both of your tops and this style. I like this neckline so much, I morphed it onto long sleeve cotton knit nighties.

Another beautiful top from you. I like the trim too. Sounds like you really played around with the serger too.

Both tops are great; but I really, really love the new one. It's so tricky doing motif placement on these types of prints. Yours came out wonderfully.

Very pretty tops! I like the versatility of this pattern; will have to try it.

This looks beautiful and the fabric is to die for. Another wonderful creation.

I really like your new top with the contrast trim! I have this pattern, but haven't tried it yet. You have given me the inspiration to try it, since yours have turned out so nice.

Great top. The style looks so good on you, and the fabric is wonderful.

Your top looks terrific. Thanks for the info on sizing. I have this pattern and am looking forward to trying it but am waiting on delivery of fabric. I have just scrolled through your album and you have the most exciting and inspirational wardrobe.

Very nice tops, Ann. I've made this several times, but I hadn't thought to use a sweater knit. Very nice.

I was very excited to see your review. I have my fabric cut out for this very pattern. I hope mine turns out as well as yours.

What fun, Ann! I bet this top looks great with that Plaza jacket and the Panel pant too. Seems like you are working on a color story here.

Ann, I love the top, and the skirt is smashing with it! Add that coat you made, and you have one classy outfit! Gorgeous work!

Ann, I really like the effect of the left front piece on the bias. It looks as if the fabric were wrapped around your body and tucked over your left shoulder. Very cool.
