Best Top! Readers Choice of 2011

And now for our Readers Choice Award for Best Top of 2011! The top with the most reader votes from our final voting round goes to Shelby G for her Miss Eliza Bennet Top!

Shelby’s use of the floral fabric on top with the green sash is just wonderful. And you all know I’m a huge fan of the empire waist. I know many of you fell in love with this top as it swept the vote on in the first round of voting and captured 34% of the reader vote in the final round! Congratulations Shelby!!!

Shelby, Novita, and our three other finalists, Ruby, Nikki, and Amanda will all be receiving prizes (listed here and here) from my sponsors and other handmade designers and businesses who donated sewing supplies, patterns, and accessories for our sewalong winners this year!

Here’s another look at our lovely runner-ups one last time. Congratulations to you three as well! Your tops were amazing!

I hope you’ve really enjoyed our Spring Top Sewalong! It’s always interesting to me to watch how it all plays out — I don’t have a hand in any of the scoring or selection, so it’s really exciting to sit back (although it’s sometimes hard to just keep my mouth shut) and watch how it all unfolds. I’m so pleased with our winners and hope everyone who submitted a top or just followed along had a great time!
