This is really nice on you. The style and fabric both suit you (and I love your expression too).

I love the joy on your face and the shirt has a wonderful drape.

I love Peggy Sagers' thinking, but I also hae trouble with many of her patterns being so simplified that they do not work for me.

Your top looks great on you!

The top looks great, I made two of them and I love them. The back neckline needs to be stabilized if you use a knit. I just serge the sleeves smaller from the elbow down as I like to push them up during the day. No buttons, no extra width.

Excellent looking. I also like the drape of the cowl ...just a bit not too much. the fabric is yummy as well.

The top is cute and looks great on you! I love the expression on your face, it matches your "name" FrammaJoy! I will try Elona's link to your blog and see if it works. TFS, FrammaJoy and Elona, et al!

What a stylish top. I'm still new to Silhouette patterns and read all the reviews. I love your blog too.

Cool match of fabric to pattern. LIKE a lot!

I think this is the proper link to your blogspot: http://www.joyful-expressions.blogspot.com/ and there we can see all the views of this very nice top. I especially like the neckline, as you do, for the very slight drape there, but I can see the problems you note. That sleeve is truly strange in this day and age, with the fullness taken in by a button and buttonhole arrangement. Peggy says the sleeve of any of her tops will fit into the armhole of any other top, but I have overlaid this cowl top onto several of her top patterns whose sleeves I prefer, and BOY, are they in no way similar!

I noticed the same thing. Just made this and the sleeve was so much narrower at the top - it pulled! Compared to another Silhouette pattern, and at least 1: difference! Will widen for my next one!

Really cute top but I couldn't see it on your blog either. Where did you get the fabric? I love it!

Durn burn it! The top is REALLY cute, but those links are not working
