I just adore this. And to think that you made it from a mumu. The texture at the waist is so beautiful!

Beautiful, Dilliander! Both shirts are unique and your review is great. Thanks!

Well, your two Archer shirts are not just my favorites - they are the only ones that have really caught my eye. They are lovely. Your fabric choices are outstanding and bring out the best in the pattern.

OMG - that top is BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the way it seems to hug the waist and that fabric is divine. It looks like it would be really flattering on. That twisting is a great technique. Another wonderful top.

Gorgeous! (not yabba dabba doo at all)

Oh, I love this! No! The fabric is just wonderful, I like the mottled effect but not animal print, very different. And the crinkles! Simply brilliant! Great job!

Gorgeous shirt, and so clever with the crinkles. The yabba dabba doo reference made me laugh!

Love your reviews- beautiful thinking through to a fine result. I always learn a lot from your terrific wardrobe. Back detail- nice and easy to try on my TNT.

You are so clever! What a great shirt. Love the crinkle effect.

As soon as I saw the thumbnail of this, I knew it was one of your lovely creations. As always, the fit and fabric is gorgeous. The crinkle effect making this into a fitted blouse is genius. I will look at crinkle fabric with new eyes from now on as a whole host of possibilities suddenly present themselves.

Your shirt is great! Thanks for the washing a twisting idea. That is so cool.

Oh that blouse is so lovely! What a great reuse of fabric. That back detailing is divine!

Jstarr that's great :) I hope you enjoy making this pattern too and look forward to seeing yours on PR. Thanks everyone for the feedback and affirmation on fabric choice.

I just bought the download. The instructions and illustrations look terrific and I think this is going to be moved to the front of the que! Thanks for the inspiration.

This is beautiful and what a great idea for a fabric source! I've noticed this pattern and its positive reviews and plan to give it a try based on your great experience with it. Love that crinkled fit!

All the best with your swap. This is a great shirt.

I was unaware of this pattern, but this is a beautiful top! And definitely not yabba dabba do. :)

Great fabric and definitely not Flintstones. I think I prefer the crinkled look as the fit will be more flattering on you.
