I wanted to make a couple of tops that I could wear to work, and loved ParaNoire’s Lydia version so much that I decided to try making my own. Nice and easy and I wear this all the time. The underside of the collar is lined with black fabric. Thanks to all the other sewers who recommended making a few sizes smaller. I made this two sizes smaller than I normally would and it fits perfectly. I was originally going to embellish it a bit more, but ended up liking it as is.
