My attempt at the Ellinor top. I’m very happy with how it turned out. I didn’t use elastic at the waistline, opting for a casing and ribbon instead. I’ve never worn a top with sleeves like this before and I really like them. I might try them on another pattern if I can figure out how. If I make it again I will probably cut the front piece on the fold and not have a front seam or slit in the neckline.
