I made this from the Tara base pattern. I cut two of the back instead of using the front and added a flounce at the bottom. I wasnt too crazy about the flutter thing so I doubled the fabric and now its more like a cap-y sleeve. I added a barley visible bow on the right side to cover up a mistake (lolol).

Material Notes

Cotton broad cloth in black for the skirt. Cotton broad cloth print for the flounce and bodice.
I bought the fabric from fabric.com

    Thanks! Yeah, when I saw the instructions for the normal top I knew the front would turn out to be a mess with the little patience I have for folding and ironing things (pressing the casing for the elastic almost made me rip my hair out.) So I just decided to use two of the back since it was low cut enough to be a proper front neckline.

    I love it! I tried twice to do the Tara top, but in the front it always turned out really messy. Your idea is just prefect to use the back pattern. I think I might try it again. Thank you a lot for the idea!
