I made the Tara top to fit my maternity figure. I used my regular bust and sleeve size and used the largest size for the bottom portion of the top. I thought the sleeves were a little to fluttery, so I tappered them down with a small top-stitched pleat (not perfect . . . I’m still learning). Added the bias tape around the neck-line because I liked the look on “Myk’s” uploaded creation.
“Myk” for the bias tape idea, my mom for giving me the idea for calming down the sleeves.
