My original plans for this top was to add a larger piece of the Kaufman Movie Monsters fabric that I have below the bust line. Once I actually got it made and pinned on the piece, I realized it didn't look good, so I went with this instead!! 
 I used Simplicity pattern 3450 View A. I didn't use stretchy fabric or anything like what is listed on the back. It's more of a light cotton...can't remember the kind now!!! Instead of plain black cuffs for the sleeves, I used the Movie Monster Fabric there. I also trimmed it in green bias tape that matched the green in the Monster fabric. After I realized the large piece of fabric wouldn't worked, I remembered the Bride of Frankenstein patch that I've been having for a while now...never really knew what you do with it. But it was PERFECT for this top!! And I do love the Bride!! So this is my finished product:



Sleeve detail: 
 

Patch: 
 


If I can ever get my hands on a Frankenstein patch like that, I'll probably make another one with his picture on it!!

I like, its cute but funky at the same time...I think that makes it either fute or cunky...whichever works best Cheesy
