Thank you. Thanks Rosalaya, with the fabric so sheer, I didn't want to add more weight and double serging strengthen the shoulder seam w/o added weight.

Thanks Sheila, I'm learning new things every day. For shoulders I just lay down some twill tape or selvedge and overlock over that.

I was able to upload 2 pics of the underside of the kimono, wherein I used 1/4" elastic and serged all the seams. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/17644693/wrongside%20flat.JPG https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/17644693/Slide1.JPG

Thank you. @Rosalaya, double serging is just serging the first time with the knife active and serging the second time without the knife. Basically strengthening the shoulder seam.. nothing more.

Such a grand pairing of fabric and pattern. Well done. Umm..... Just what is double serging?

Wow, great use of that interesting fabric with a really cute result. Nice tunic and I'm thinking "great swimsuit cover-up"...

Thanks for the awesome compliments. @ Diane, I will try to take a pic tonight of the inside. I set the stitch width to 4.4 and the length 1.5.

Really like your top. Are you able to show the inside of your 3 rows of elastic? I would like to make this top .

I LOVE your top. You got the best pattern placement of all on it too! Super cute and I want that fabric!...to make an identical top. :) Looks great on you!

Lovely top! I have had this pattern, and fabric for it, in my stash for a long time. I should make it up after seeing your beautiful version. I really like the idea of the elastic thread-might have to steal it :)
