This is my adaptation of the Bella. I decided to try and make the top similar to the Kasia skirt (which I also love). So I kind of made my own pattern pieces for the top and front between the pockets. I love the pockets! To be honest I’m not sure this is the most professional way of merging two patterns, but I did it anyway… :O
