This is the basic Lydia Top I made in a very stretchy material.
Unfortunately I cut the the material wrong and the grain now goes horizontal not vertical (I know what you’re thinking..and you’re right!).
It’s also the first time I made any type of pattern alteration. I took the the sides in a bit, just under the sleeve) and adjusted the sleeve circumference at the top. I’m just not sure wether I should have adjusted the shoulder as well, as it hitches up now and again. You can see on the picture. Otherwise I think it turned out alright.
