This is based on the Short Raglan-Sleeve Top pattern from the Japanese sewing book, Simple Modern Sewing by Shufu To Seikatsu Sha.
All in all, it was pretty easy to make, although I did scratch my head a few times reading the instructions. The pattern layout suggests cutting out two 1" wide (+ seam allowance) pieces of fabric for the neckline casing; when in fact, you need a 3" wide piece of fabric (which you then fold over).
I love the neckline, but I think I might end up shortening the hemline a bit.
