I decided to make a test version of liz before using some of my nice fabrics. This top is really easy to get a perfect fit, as all the seams can be tweaked. I found the directions for putting on the collar were unclear (can anyone who’s made this enlighten me?), so it looks a little wonky.
Light blue embroidered cotton gauze (had rust stains, so the fabric store was going to throw it away!), buttons recycled from the yellow skirt used to make my desira top!
