I have a weakness on dress or top with empire waist cutting, it makes me look slim. Specially if it's flair out on the bottom part. Combine with belled sleeves, and we have a winner. You can make this top with cotton thread or yarn and it will be excellent for summer. Or you can make this with wool, wear it like a jacket and it's perfect for Fall. You can wear with a jeans, or you can wear it with a skirt for formal occasion. This top is must for your wardrobe. This pattern is worked from top down, so you can try it as you go. Also this pattern will show you step by step how to incorporate your own measurement into the pattern. So it will fit you nicely. Sizes: Custom fit Needle: Your favourite needle. I use size 3.5 mm or US size E - 4 Yarn: Thread, fingering weight or lace weight or any yarn available. I used Cannon Thread size 8 (9 balls) Yarn requirement: enough for your project Thread: For size S (M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL) needs 1750 (1925, 2100, 2275, 2450, 2625) meter Yarn: For size S (M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL) needs 2200 (2420, 2640, 2860, 3080, 3300) meter Notion: Tapestry needle, 6 buttons (4 fancy and 2 plain), marker Gauge: Variable Difficulty: Experienced Note: Since I always like the clarity of Japanese pattern in symbol, I would like also to use those symbol into my pattern beside the normal English written instruction. You can choose which one you prefer, but I suggest to use both.
