I finished my new top!  light brown stretchy velvet, waist, slanted, slightly flared hem, broad round neckline, and very comfy!  Ready for next week at the office!  Yay! Grin

The pattern I modified for this comes from a magazine and was for a top in velvet with round, low scoop neckline and some cutwork under it for added interest, but the bottom was tightish.  Since it is a very easy one, I used it, without the cutwork, for a simple pajama top, and I was so delighted with the fit that I intend to use it again... and maybe again!  With small variations, the possibilities are endless and so easy!  Here I mainly flared the bottom so that it was flowy.  I remember having had (in the eighties Shocked) a couple of long t-shirts with a very wide bottom that nearly looked like a skirt, and I loved them because they made my hips look much better.  When I tried the half made bodice for this one, I knew it had to be like this Cheesy  I'm loving it.

PS: sorry for the low quality pic, I remembered too late that I can use a retarded shot function with my camera and had a very intense session with the mirror in order to manage a more or less ok photo.  And it's difficult to get a clear image when you click the button while you're standing on your very toes.
