Description

I love this pattern! I opted to do away with the casing at the hem, which makes the top rather swingy and a little short. It is cute, but if I remake, I will likely slim down the body and add 3-4 inches in length. The written directions were quite useless, but it is fairly simple construction and I was able to figure it out using the images.

I didn’t have enough fabric to cut my neckline casing on the bais, so that piece is a bit wonky, but I don’t think it’s noticeable once you pull the gathers together. I also used pre-made 1/4" bias binding around the armholes (again, since I did not have enough fabric to make my own).

I made my version in a lightweight cotton rather than the suggested chiffon (I’m more of a cotton girl), but this didn’t cause any problems.

Material Notes

lightweight printed cotton, thread, 1/4" bias binding.

    So cute! I really like how that top looks in a cotton rather than chiffon. Love the pattern on the fabric, too.
