Hi all, I made this top for myself, its a simple pattern from NewLook.
I omited the interfacing, added ties to make it a bit slimmer at the waist ( I need all the help I can get!) and lined the armholes with ribbon. I didn't have any binding and the ribbon looks really nice, kind of vintage.
The fabric I adore, but have had it sitting around for the last three years, it has flowers but also bugs and grass hoppers.
I plan to get a bit of use out of this pattern as I am very happy with the finished result and it was very quick.  Grin

It's so hard to take a pic of yourself!

It looks great, I love the yoke/collar, it sits perfectly without interfacing.

Great summer look!  I like that design.  Any chance of you contorting yourself to show us a picture of the back? LOL  Cheesy Cheesy
