The need to use stripes in different directions was a nice consequence of using pieces. Creates a fun look.

I like how you mixed up the stripes for the collar!

I love it, and you cleverly juxtaposed the stripes to add interest.

You're shortage of fabric offered you a great design opportunity - adds more interest this way! Question: I prefer the front of your version - did you streamline the front from the waist down? Either way, a fun top!

I like the mix of vertical and horizontal stripes. I bought this a few weeks ago, but have been nervous about the cross over.

STARG said...
Ceedee: to answer your question there was no streamlining at all. The sides are as the pattern comes out of the envelope. My fabric was very drapey though. Hope that answers your question!

Well, it looks great; perhaps it's the drapey-ness (is that a word? lol) played a part in the different look. Thanks for the response; it's now on my wish list!

I love your change of direction on the stripes--with the added bonus of not needing to match the stripes! I wonder how this would look lengthened as a dress?

The design is cool to begin with, but the stripes really elevate it!

How fun! You added such a fabulous dimension with the stripes going in different directions. Butterick should put your picture on the pattern instead of theirs.
