Simplicity 1618 Top View C │ Wearable Muslin

Hey everybody, I'm back with a muslin version of S1618 - view C with a cold shoulder. I really like this style and it seems to be trending a lot this summer. I cut size medium, and the pattern has a lot of ease - for my final version I'll go with small. I also need an easier-to-handle type of knit, or just leave the seams unserged. I serged the center front and back seams and it caused wrinkling and pulling that wouldn't completely iron out even with a steam iron. The pattern is pretty simple, though, and the top comes together quickly. The cold shoulder wasn't as challenging as I thought it would be. 

From the side view you can tell how loose it is . The fabric is very comfortable so it makes a great top to wear at home and while running errands. I'm so behind on my summer sewing - I need a bunch of tops. Hopefully I can get a few done in the next couple of weeks. 
Part of the reason why I haven't been sewing is that we lost my father-in-law last month and it's been such a sad time for the family. I lost all my sewjo when it happened and I'm slowly trying to get back to normal. 

Hope you're all having a wonderful week. Happy sewing!
