I always think I prefer really sculpted tops. But I have this one blue top that is really loose, and quite boxy. Every time I wear it, I feel lovely and it seems that it gets more compliments than anything else in my wardrobe.

So, I've branched out from what I usually like and it has been a good decision. The Angel Top is made with vintage crepe polyester and it is incredibly comfortable. 

Enter to win the Angel Top!

    What I love about this top is that I can wear it or share it with my teen daughters and we would all look great in it.

    so for me, that would be a little out of my comfort zone as well, but I love the way it looks - I'd love the chance to wear it!!

    I found your blog a few weeks ago and really love what your making. This top is lovely! You hit it on the head with the flouncy, loose look but still it's figure flattering.

    I'm with you when it comes to preferring sculpted tops, but I really like the simple style of this blouse. I love the teal one especially.
  14. Ines VieiraDec 6, 2011 01:10 PM
    I always came to your blog for inspiration, your style is so similar to mine! I would love to get one of these tops, they are amazing! (:

    So pretty, Lynette. I would have a hard time deciding which color to get if I won--I love them all. Great work. :)

    Lynette, I think that all that can be said about your wonderful talent has been said, so I can only echo. I enjoy looking at your creations and am glad you get to make real your fashion dreams! You are inspiring. This top is lovely and I am especially loving the children's collection.
  21. Claire Andra WhiteDec 7, 2011 10:03 AM
    what a lovely top! You have such a gif! This top is like the wonder top: I feel like it would look good on any body type! Pick me and I promise to be a walking advertisement :)

  23. SylviaDec 7, 2011 09:32 PM

    I just discovered you on Burdastyle and love your blog. So I'm following! Great top, I should make myself a couple of these
  25. photosarahDec 8, 2011 02:43 PM
    I love the top, especially in teal.
  26. CamberwellGalDec 8, 2011 02:44 PM
    I love these tops with their cut on sleeves; yours look great tucked in or loose. I keep opening your blog on my feed-reader and discovering new things I now need to make; this blouse/t-shirt top [yup!] wool circle skirt (love your red one!) [need one of those!], and I definitely need some new black trousers. So - if nothing else I now have list of projects for Christmas!

    Love the top because you can dress it up or wear with jeans. An all purpose garment!
