The Lydia I made up in a size 34 but I did taper out to the smallest possible seam allowance at the bottom to cater for my pear shape. This is such a fast easy project and results in a RTW looking top. I used my twin needles to do a mock coverstitch to finish the hems and neckline and I am pretty happy with the professional “non homemade” look it gives. Blogged here
