Was looking around for tops with ruffles today and saw your post again. Two words: casual elegance. I love how you modded the pattern for a knit. Serger, here I come!

Wow, thanks everyone! I woke up to all these new comments! I'll confess I am wearing it again today - I'm not going to see any of the same people so it's ok!

Absolutely stunning. I would have never thought of making this in a knit. Love the tie!

Clever, clever modification from dress to top! Makes me want to look at every dress pattern I own to see if they are potential tops!!! It looks super on you!

I really love this as a blouse! I have this pattern and may try modifying it before I make another dress. Well done!

I have this pattern but couldn't make it work in a woven. I'm going to have to try it in a knit. Love the way the ruffles fall!

I really love this as a top, great job.

Thank you, kind ladies! @SewLibra, I actually knocked this off from a beautiful friend, who posted a picture of herself wearing a similar top on Facebook. Everyone was commenting on her post, but all I could think was "I NEED that top!!!"

I just love it - gorgeous!

Just beautiful- those ruffles look perfectly hemmed!
SewLibra said... (7/11/13 9:35 PM) Reply
Nice! The peplum hem hits your hips at the right place too. You used your imagination, which is what sewing for ourselves is all about.
