I promise, this is one of those tops that looks so much cuter on a person than it does on a hanger. Really. Maybe some day I’ll get Hubby to snap a modeled picture so I can prove it to you.
I used this tutorialto make the pattern for this top. I did change the back neckline to sit a bit higher than the front neckline, though, which necesitated changing the sleeve piece as well. After I made a tester top, I felt like that was an important change, and I’m happy that I did it. I used elastic shirring at the neck, arms and waist. I really love the fabric I used for this top, it’s by Robert Kaufman, part of his “London Calling” collection. It’s a lawn, lightweight without being sheer, with a lovely soft drape.
