I am so in love with this top! It’s my favorite thing I’ve made, and my favorite new item in my wardrobe! I used Simplicity 3956, view E for the top. It’s a simple summer tank with amazing drape, but what really made this garment was the fabric. It’s such a yummy vibrant green and pink! It was a splurge for me at $13 a yard, but it was certainly worth it.
I really recommend the pattern, though of course it has WAY too much ease, so make at least one size, if not two or three, smaller then your measurements would indicate.
