    I love the dress-as-top exploration but not that exposed zipper. That said the top looks so comfortable to wear and touch. Well done.

    Love the neck detail – was it difficult?

      Thanks, Juliet! No, it was super easy. The only part that messed me up was that the directions tell you to pleat, then baste, then baste again after you have all the pleats in place. I couldn’t figure out what thaf first “baste” was about, so I stitched along the fold of very pleat. This is not necessary and I had to rip all the stitches out.

    This is a lovely top and it looks warm as well. I guess you need plenty of warm clothes at the moment. I really like the neck line detail/tucks; it is very feminine.

      Thank you! I’d like to try the pleated neckline with a woven fabric to see what it looks like with a crisper fabric – maybe a stretch poplin or even a cotton lawn. I’ll need to see if I have something leftover in my stash as it could be a diaster!
