I made a top out of some fabric my Aunt & Uncle brought me from South Africa!
I LOVE the print, I think the fabric is beautiful!
I used a free Burda pattern that I printed off at home:

It was pretty annoying sticking the pieces together because the lines were very faint, so I went over them in a Sharpie pen first and then cut out and stuck!

The bodice has darts, front & back but is very simple and easy to make

I used bias binding for the neck and arm holes and inserted an open zip in the back...

Close up of how the back matched up (I'm pretty pleased with how it did!):


C&C please! Smiley

You did well! The top is beautiful and it fits you like a glove. The cut is very flattering on you! I love the darts and pleating as it adds a nice crispness to the tank.
