Cross-over top in a polyester lycra knit by Calvin Klein. Top consists of only 4 main pattern pieces: left front, right front, neckband, and sleeve. Simple to sew from the “Fast and Easy” Butterick series.
Working with prints can be tricky as you can see. The “band of gray” was not intended to be there.
