I finally finished the top, talk about a labor of love, that fabric was a pain in the butt! It was worth it though, I really love this top. It is actually a little bit too big, but I like the way it looks. I would rather my clothes a little big than too tight. I made a size 14. I probably could have cut it inbetween the 12 and 14 and it would have been perfect. The pattern is pretty straightforward, but I wouldn't consider it easy, more like intermediate. It would be easier on a different fabric, like a lightweight linen or a cotton lawn. Regular quilting cotton would probably be too thick. You want it kind of flowy. The neckline is a little bit low for my comfort. It isn't vulgar or anything, I just like things a little more covered up. Havn't decided what I am going to do about this, maybe a little lace camisole. I may make this again in the dress with linen. I can only handle these slippery fabrics every once in a while. I swear, it took me an hour just to sew the dang zipper in this morning.
This is my oldest ,Austin, giving my youngest, Ava, a piggy back ride this morning. I love pictures like this : ) I can't believe my oldest "baby" is almost 16 years old and over 6 feet tall! Time flies by.
