Princeton, New J...
I made this top in all cotton, serged the inside seams and otherwise made myself proud.
I also added an eye and hook to the bust section to keep the wrap together, but my total bustiness still causes it to gape when I move around. I’ll probably end up wearing a tank top under it, or adding in more snaps to keep it place. Perhaps one in the belt area. Also, I may consider making belt loops to keep the belt right where I want it. I don’t like adjusting clothes while I’m wearing them!
