This is lovely and your version looks much better than the one on the pattern envelope!

Nice work! It looks like it would be more complicated to make than you describe. Nice to see a cute sleeveless top.

Christa, this is a darling top and looks so good with the long skirt. I love the way these two pieces look together. The style and the ruffled hem really puts this little top over the top. Great job.

Love this Mrs Cool - just so perfect for this hot summer and looks great on you. Funny that Levonne should ask about your daughter because it was just yesterday I was wondering what she was up to - I too miss her reviews

This is a very cute top on you Krista. All edges are so nicely finished. It's great to hear how Meggie LuLu is doing and I can't agree more - she'll come back to sewing throughout her life!

Thanks so much for the nice comments! Levone, to answer your question, my daughter (Meggie LuLu) talks about how much she misses sewing, but her life is in a really busy stage with college and work. She did repair and hem a bunch of pants the other night, but that's the first time she been at her machine in FOREVER!!! I know she'll come back to it someday; she loved the hobby too much to abandon it forever. Thanks for asking about her.

Cute top! If you're slow, I don't know what I am, lol. BTW, how's your daughter doing, does she still sew? I loved her pattern reviews!. :-)

Good idea, the lettuce edge. Lovely top.

I REALLY like this with the one flounce, Christa, and I don't think I would have thought to do it that way. And, I must say, that lettuce edge on the flounce is one of the best design features, INVENTED BY YOU! :o) This makes for a great outfit, with your brown skirt.
