This top is made from the same pattern as the last. I'm so glad I didn't buy the pattern for this b/c it would be really easy to do without it.
I'm just learning to use patterns so I went with the easiest version.
The others have long sleeves and I hope to try that soon.  Grin

The fabric on this one doesn't drape as nicely as the last.. but I still like it.

Hope you like it & TFL (=

I like this one too. Can you get someone to do an action shot. It looks like it would drape nicely.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

I love this!

And I envy your organized fabric shelf. =)

Thank you! But yeah.. It's only organized until I get the rest of the fabric out of boxes. The linen closet is full of boxes of fabric. eeeek.

Both are cute!  Is this one cotton?  I've got to make a quick top for this weekend and I've got some cotton ready to go.  The other one drapes nicer, but this has nice shape too.  Also, how much bigger than your width did you make the rectangles?  Thanks!  Smiley

I really like tops like that, they look so cute and comfy.

Thanks! The other is a t-shirt type material but really slinky and light. This one is kind of a thick silky type.
I'm sure cotton would work. I think 8-10 inches were added but probably no more than that. I also think it would depend on how much drapiness you wanted. & how it works with the fabric.
I hope I'm not super confusing.  Embarrassed

Ah.. it reminds me a lot of the tute for the Le Sac Dress! But I wouldn't add that much extra material with a heavy fabric. Hope that helps Smiley
