This top is for my summer travel wardrobe. The pattern (Anda) is super easy. However the fabric I chose (a super light silk cotton blend) almost killed me! It took a lot of patience & so this actually took me a really long time to finish.
The alterations I made were pretty straight forward. The pattern was shortened to make it a top instead of a dress & the elastic was sewn in in between the lining & facing instead of having a seperate casing.
I finished the edges of the sleeves with some binding I made from fabric left over from my watermelon shorts
