I like to try new patterns, and thought this was very nice and fun :) I found this transparent net-chiffon in my stash and decided it would be perfect for this top. It is challenging with such fabric so I had to hand stitch around the neck and use small zig-zag around the sleeves and hem. I also used a thin rubberband in the hem because I thought it was a bit loose. I used french seams in the sides as suggested. I have used the same fabric for a dress earlier in another color: www.burdastyle.com/projects/smily-evening-dress
