Love the Color and the asymetry. When I purchased this pattern I did not think of using scraps. Thanks for the inspiration.

Your tops totally inspired me to get going on mine - I will likely make a dress version as well, thank you!

Your creativity shines in these outfits. I love how both the dress and tunic top flatter your figure. I like the way you changed the hemline from the original. Kudos for a great mix of fabric.

Dorothy, both your tunic and your dress are fabulous. I was happy to see both in person, because I'm not sure all the fabric mixing comes across in the pics! They are definitely even better in person!

I have this pattern and now it's zooming to the top of my must make pile. I have you as one of my "favorites," because not only do we share the same taste in patterns, but you so rock the looks. Be well, Tina in San Diego

Both wonderful garments. I love the mix of fabrics especially that nubby mesh with the jersey.

Well, it is obvious you had fun sewing these garments, Dorothy. They are so creative and original. I love how your tunic muslin turned into a high fashion "dress". They look great on you!
