Using the design from the Pattern Magic by Tomoko Nakamichi as a starting point; I chose to make mine into a little top of white linen, with a button band at the centre back and a wide waist band. Short self-drafted sleeves. Neckline facing; flat felled shoulder and side seams and HongKong binding on the armhole seam allowances.
