Beautiful! I've been reading reviews of the skirts from this pattern and it looks like a keeper all around. Thanks for the helpful info on the "flare".

Elegant result! I agree with your 'underarm' flare assessment -with a looser fitting garment, this can be too much. When seeking a tighter fit, the underarm 'flare' serves the design well.

Great top, very nice in your fabric. This is one of those patterns I keep eyeing.

The fabric looks lovely sorry to read that it was fiddly to work with. Very becoming on you.

Thanks for showing the muslin pic. I love this pattern and had made a few up in slinky that looked perfect. I was really surprised to find that the pattern didn't fit right when I made it up into an interlock polo shirt: The sleeve head and sleeve, too full and the front rode up quite a bit but that may be partly because I stitched a knit collar to the back seam, not removing the full sa. I tried the slinky tops back on and started noticing these details. I'll definitely cut the sleeves and armscye smaller if I do it again. The jury is still out on a FBA b/c of the collar application.

Ok, you guys have got to quit doing this to me. Another pattern that I have got to have. A very nice job, Irina and such a pretty color.

this looks really excellent on you. the color is great too. I have the same problem with the underarm flair on many patterns.

Very nice. I have made this several times - make mine a little looser than the pattern calls for, too.

Looks great! I may have to add this one to my (already very long) wish list!
