Choosing striped fabric for this top wasn’t the smartest thing to do but I will wear this top as it is so comfortable and I love the neck line. I did not make the neck line as per the pattern as it becomes a v-neck at the back. I just used the neck line for the dress #107 because I don’t like the back of my neck exposed in cooler weather. An age thing!! This top is very easy to make and fits well although for my body shape, I had to raise the bust darts up about 4 cm.
