I made this top out of a nice flowing Rayon, that frays very easy, but hangs beautifully. The pattern calls for a full lining, which is basically the top facing with the body part attached. I did not make a full lining, as she thought she would be too hot. Instead, I added a piece of spandex to the front lining, so that is would sit nicely under the bust line.
I would recommend that if you are making the full lining, that you make and fit the lining first, and consider using a stretch lining for the lower half of the lining.
This top is rated as Easy, yet it is fully lined, has pleats and tucks, and integrated pockets in View A & B. I would only consider it easy for someone with some sewing experience, or an advanced beginner that has someone to ask questions of. Additionally, a couple of the notches do not line up.
