I made this top ages ago, like so many things I don’t get around to updating :) This is a variation on my previous “Port Elizabeth in Silk”. I added a keyhole opening to the back and a scalloped peter-pan collar. Unfortunately, I think the collar doesn’t show so well, because the pattern of the fabric is so busy. Also I have to make a note to self: lengthen Port Elizabeth pattern if you make it again! Yes, it does turn out a little short and is difficult to tuck into skirts or pants. Otherwise it’s a very nice, palin pattern that can be used for so many different variations.
