    Great job! I’ve just made this top up too, but used the suggested lace for the top part. I wondered what it would look like in a more solid fabric and I am happy to see it looks great. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Lovely! I’ve been dying to try this pattern, but couldn’t decide on fabric. However, yours is such great inspiration – it’s even cuter than the example! I love it.

      Crazy coincidence – I was just looking Google-image-searching for fabric inspiration for the Sencha top and came across your Sencha post when I got this comment. Nice! I think I shall be a new follower :)
