Effort, United S...
I saw this style knit top in a boutique window while on vacation and remembered seeing the pattern here.
I really didn’t know what size to cut, so I cut the size 48. This pattern was the free Beta version of Celeste dress on Craftzine.com and had the seam allowances included in the pattern, so I sewed together using 3/8" seam allowance.
You need to use part of the front skirt for the lower part of the blouse if you use dress pattern.
The blouse looks ok, but is baggy at the bust and I could use more room around waist and hips.
The shorts are my Janina Shorts without the faux back pocket flaps.
