What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a simple project suitable for someone with only a little sewing experience and I give full step by step photo instructions on my site. Give it a go !

Thank you for all your projects Deby I too am British living with my family now in Florida. Anyway I made this top BUT while it fits okay the straps come no where near my bra straps. Yes I know it is made for a 36" bust and I am 38"but I thought if I lengthen the front and back angled strips it might work. I know it would reduce some of the gather but no sure what else to do, other than adding a little cap sleeve?? Help Sue

Hi Sue, it really hard to deal with fitting issues here. Can you send me an email and some pictures and I'll take a look.

I like the pattern tried it out using peach printed silk fabric but did not look right may would try knit fabric.

This pattern was drafted for knit fabrics only and wouldn't work correctly in a silk sadly. Hope the next one turns out perfectly.
