Another version of the dress shortened into a top. I made this one slightly bigger with longer sleeves. It’s really comfy, but because I also changed the bodice from a woven to a knit, I think I would’ve been better off leaving the pattern the same size. The sleeves too- they’re comfy but tend to balloon past my elbow and look a little sloppy. I think the proportions look better with the shorter sleeve too.

Verdict: play with fabrics, leave pattern as is in Stylish Dress Book.
