This is my take on the Tara top, which is very popular on the BurdaStyle, and now I see why. It is feminine, cute and a quick and easy project.
I wanted a top of the floral fabric I used for my white skirt. The Tara top was perfect choice for me. The size is fitting on my bust, and hiding my tummy. I’m sure I’ll make it again. First the shoulders was too large, so the sleeves felt down, so I lowered the back piece by 4 cm and took the front of the sleeves by 1 cm. I don’t know how, but the sleeves are yet centered, they don’t fall backwards. I suspect, there is something with my backlenght, it might shorter somehow.
I’m sorry for the bad quality pictures…
