Lovely top Helem, cool, floaty and very trendy.

Plus the sleeve bits are not so long they will get in soup, washing up or catch on door handles. (Or maybe that's me? I had this great blouse I made with kimono sleeves and it kept stopping me dead when I went through a door and the handle got stuck up the sleeve, eventually ripped I think ;-()

I do wonder how you'd get a cardi on top
capsule wardrobe and charity craft sewing mostly.

It's going to have to be one that doesn't have too tight a sleeve Ruthie! I tried it with a jacket that I have and it's okay so we'll have to see. I wore it today as they seem to think the summer weather is over for a while and it felt nice to wear.

I would never have considered this based on the pattern picture but you've totally sold it to me. I have some silky peach printed fabric that would work so well with this pattern. Thank you!

Hope you enjoy your top!

Finally got photos.  Pardon the ugly me.

Self drafted, poly ribbon trim, dress hooks, polyester suiting.

I edited for resizing photos.  Sorry again.  I know how to do this, but was in a hurry and brain took a coffee break.

@Kwaaked   Could you please include the photos into the text. Otherwise I would have to dow load them, upload them elsewhere to post them in the voting thread. You'll find a tutorial on how to do that on the previous page of this thread.

It will take me a couple of hours to get back home and do it if that's ok.

@Kwaaked - no worries, here the system allowed me to do it for you, with my moderator hat on.... sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't  ;)

Wow, we have so far 14 entries   :D - I'll put the voting thread up tomorrow. Anyone who still wants to submit an entry should have their photos up here by today.

@Manuela Thank you, I did it in a hurry because SO had us going to his folks' house.

No need to thank me, sometimes I'm able to do that at other times not, not quite sure why  :)
Anyway, it's a brilliant feature Fran gave us. That way we can post pictures straight from out devices and add place them into the text without having to host them elsewhere.

@Manuela , you can grab the URLs for the images from people's uploads without them being in the text if you like. Just expand the image, right click, choose "Copy image address" and it'll give you the address to the image.
