-Added 4" to the length of the back and front yoke
-Removed 3 1/2" from the length of the ruffle pattern piece 8
-Added a 1" waistband
-Cut the back and front yoke pattern at an angle to create 4 back pieces and 4 front pieces

Top stitch the yoke pieces and the ruffle piece

The top was made with downloaded Burdastyle dress pattern 11/2013 #128 with the following alterations:

-Removed 17.5" from the pattern length
-When sewing the left sleeve to the bodice, left 7" of the seam open to make room for the zipper.
-Added a 2.5" exaggerated neck (measure the neck and cut the fabric length using that measurement plus 5/8" for the seam allowance, the width cut should be 5" plus 5/8" for S/A. Use a interfacing for knits and iron to the wrong side of the neck fabric, fold the collar in half, baste and attach the collar.
-Add the zipper to the sleeve seam allowance and the collar

    Love this, too. Very inspired colour! I made that type of skirt to go with one of the tops I made and I noticed (from the pictures ) that it is actually really flattering. I will try McCalls pattern as well. Great idea.
