So very simple to sew, the Port Elizabeth Top. I had to adjust measurements to fit my ample chest, wehich meant other than the width, I adjusted the length as well. I made the armholes bigger too. I would make this again, and perhaps adjust the neckline not to be so wide. It was really easy to make, I only took 2 nights (I have a day job, so I can only sew at night) to finish it and wore it the following day to work. Oh, and I finally figured how bias tape is properly used! :P
