Aleah of No Time to Sew was the first to make it up, and I love the graphic black and white pattern she chose! And the solid-colored armbands are just perfect.
Giggles in the Sun's version is a lovely feminine floral:
Gail of Today's Agenda has made not one, not two, but three. I [heart] the bold stripes she chose!
Kim of Punkmik's green polka-dot version is just too awesome for words, especially when paired with a dinosaur necklace!
And the only person to have tried it as a sweatshirt, Dapper Duds! I'm loving that bow!

Now, even as I've been enjoying seeing all these pictures pop up on teh interwebs, I've also been pleased to receive some constructive feedback about the actual pattern. As it turns out, apparently my arms are ultra-spindly, as several people have said that the arm bands needed to be widened significantly. Okay, point taken, I need to work out more before I draft more patterns based on my own measurements! ;) Also, apparently the neckline can be a little wide -- even a tiny bit of stretching out might make it unwearable. I always knew I had wide shoulders (it's one of the things I can reliably count on my grandmother to comment on), and the pattern is meant to just barely cover my bra straps, so it's totally understandable that this might be too much for some/most people. So take note, it might be a good idea to cut the neckline smaller and then enlarge it later if necessary. If you've had the misfortune of already cutting it too wide, might I suggest a center pleat to bring it in? I'll be adding these comments to the original pattern download page so that new victims are aware, too.
Anyway, if you've also had a chance to try out my pattern, let me know! I just picked up a cute scale-print knit that I might use for yet another version of this top -- it's seriously so comfortable and perfect for showcasing fun fabrics!
