This top is a result of me trying to make a McCalls pattern top which turned out to be way too small. I guess their patterns run small. I made adjustments to the pattern and it fit well except in the bust area so I cut the top off just above the armholes and made a bodice pattern from another top that I had in my closet. This is the result of my frustration! Not too bad but I will make more adjustments in the bodice before I make another one.
