I am absolutely pleased with this project! This top was such an easy, quick sew, even for a newbie like me. I chose to use a silk blend fabric, but the pattern is made for stretchy knits. I cut the pattern to a size 10, which turned out to be just the right size, even though I didn't use a stretchy fabric.
Front view of the top. Sorry I didn't realize there was a little fold there at the bottom.
Using a silky fabric was a bit of challenge because it's slippery and frays easily. So I made all the seams french seams, to prevent them from fraying. The main change I made to this pattern was not attaching elastic to the lower side seams.
Here is a zoomed-in view of the top.
I actually wore this top to work today, with RTW pants. It felt really good being complimented for something that I made. I really love this top; I can't wait to make another version of it.
