Added Dec 12, 2011
I made this top last year but have reworked it a bit and much happier with it. Firstly, I made it with a draw tie at the waistline and it didn’t suit me. My waistline isn’t what it use to be, so I removed all of that and cut off about 10cm from the hem and turned that fabric into a hem band and gathered the top slightly and then added the band. This pattern is from a Burda magazine from 2010 and most likely May/June or July.
