Top of the Tops Day 1: VOTING CLOSED

It’s Spring Top Week! We’ll be voting on a new group each day Monday-Thursday, and the top four finalists will go up for a vote on FRIDAY. So come back each day this week to vote for your favorite tops! The final vote will determine the Best Top Award (Readers Choice).

Our judges will also be voting this week on their choice for Best Top (Judges Choice)! They’ve been scoring each of the tops as they were entered, a fun but definitely busy task. Let me introduce you to my impressive and wonderful judging panel:
Florence of Flossie Teacakes (and a STW 2010 finalist!)
Jamie Christina of Jamie Christina Patterns
Deborah Moebes of Whipstitch
Kelli of Presserfoot (also a STW 2009 finalist!)
Dana of MADE
Juju of Chickpea Sewing Studio 
Edith of Edeenut Creates (a STW 2010 finalist!)
Megan of Brassy Apple (who’s put together a top tutorial for you guys, more on that soon!)
Jenny of Wan Life to Live (a STW 2010 finalist!)
Adrianna and Susan of Crafterhours (Adrianna received the Best Top (Readers’ Choice) Award last year)
Meg of Fashioned by Meg (a STW 2009 finalist)
Astrid of Connecting the Dots (our 2009 winner)
and Lindsay of liliash (last year’s Best Top (Judges’ Choice) Award winner)

Now without further ado, I’m happy to present our first group of spring tops! You can click on the link below the pictures to go directly to their picture, this will allow you to see more information/links as well. Peruse these beauties and then scroll down to VOTE for your favorite!

  1. I probably shouldn't say, but of my favorites I voted for Ruby because NO PATTERN! That still amazes me.

  2. Man… I wish I had time to join in the fun. All of the tops are awesome! I already casted my vote… that was tough…

  3. Whoa, chosing just one was difficult. I ultimately went with the pink v-neck because the darts and lines were spot-on. Not easy!

  4. I love the fabric choice that Margaret made but the blouses are all very appealing!
