Thanks so much for the awesome information on this pattern. I found the P# somewhere and was thrilled to find pics, etc. This review was very helpful since I am not your standard size and would love to try something like this. Try it in a long sleeve! I will soon since in Ohio it's turning cold fast. Both my DS will probably say it looks like PJ's also.

Looks lovely on you!

You look cool, calm, and collected in your summery top. For casual, hot weather wear, it's great. Maybe the sleeve treatment Debbie suggested would help reduce any pj look and provide a little more coverage, if you feel you want it.

It looks great! I really love what you've done with the top - very cute and feminine - just my style, so I'll definitely be getting this pattern! :)

Your top looks great, and I agree--looks very cool for hot days ahead!

Cute sleeve treatment; it works for a casual summer top. I think that the style is a touch "PJ", although paired w/ the right bottom it will probably be less so. And I really think that is supposed to be the look here. The neckline style does accent your bust slightly, I think.

I think maybe a bit Pj top, but that is the look! You did a good job in making it flattering. It looks just the thing for a hot day.

This top is very flattering on you. Cute and casual, not pajama-like. The curved hem is a great choice. I hope to see updates with more versions of this top!

I think it looks cool and comfy on you. You did a really good job. And anyone who has mastered the narrow hem foot - well, my hats off to you!

What a cute, comfy looking top.

I think this top is very cute on you! It looks so cool and comfortable and feminine. But if you are uncomfortable with the fluttery sleeves, you can make the flounces longer or add a third so that they come further down your shoulder/arm. I'm definitely adding this to my wish list. I have some stashed eyelets and other cottons this would be perfect for, esp. here in humidity-ville.

Very pretty top. The curved hemline is very flattering on you.

What a great looking top. With that pattern there are so many possibilities of so many pretty tops. Good review.

Yes! This looks very good and TX summery. I love the shaped hem. Clever. I like mine to have only the front hem scooped and the back level with the sides so my high hip is less accented. Thanks for the info about your narrow hemmer-you remind me to use mine more often. Nicely done, Hilary.

It looks very cute-definitely not too pajama-like. It will be easy to try the other views now that you have the fit worked out.
