Hi!  This is a top I started several years ago and never finished... I'm mostly okay with how it turned out, except it is a bit wonky in the back (though I think it's just the way I used the ties to tie it)

Here's a pic of the pattern.. I found at a thrift store, banged up but still usable. Smiley

And the front..

And last, the back

Comments and constructive criticism welcome.. I realize it's not perfect at all.  I'm just glad to finally have it out of my UFO pile!

I really like this!  On me, "peasant top" always translates to "makes me look enormous" but I really like the shape of this one, it's very flattering.  The print is gorgeous too, and no one will ever even notice it's not perfect.  Congrats on a finished UFO! Smiley

That's a great looking pattern, and your fabric is perfect for it Cheesy Don't you just love finding cool old patterns at the thrift store? Cheesy

Thank you all so much!  And yes, I love finding old patterns!  I just wish I could find them more often. Sad
