I love the different directions of the stripes! This really gives the top some "pop". You did a fantastic job.

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.

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

*Love* how you've used the stripes on this. It has turned out looks great.

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?

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!

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!

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

Wonderful use of stripes!

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!

Such an interesting pattern! You have a very nice tunic and it looks great on you.

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

Wow, how adorable! I love your creativity with the fabric!

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

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