I love how this top turned out! I had one problem with the neck facing popping out, so I topstitched which ruffled the fabric a bit. I plan to add the lining piece that I skipped in the first place which will help to hold it down, and take out the topstitching!
Otherwise, I’m so happy with it! It’s exactly my style, and very comfortable. Even the fit was very good, although I took it in at the sides just a bit. I also had to topstitch the pleats to hold them down while in use. I think it looks much better than if they were to be allowed to unfold (like the pattern calls for).
Navy cotton jersey recycled from a dress I bought at my company’s sample sale extra cheap! It’s fantastically comfy and gorgeous fabric :)
