That top....

I've been lucky to allow myself several pockets of time to sit and sew at my machine lately. And among my creations is yes, that top. You know the one I'm sure.
I've been wearing tops like this for the longest time and to have my hands on a pattern as easy as this is a true gem. Though I must admit I botched my first attempt..... Sizing....what is it with pattern sizing I ask? Is it just me or do they add about 2 sizes more than what you should make?

Despite this, take two was whipped up last week and turned out perfectly and at a price of $1 for the linen blend fabric that's doubly perfect.
I'm thinking of a mishmash blend of this pattern for a dress next..... after a couple of other little projects I have on the go of course......

great job on the top ....the style and linen will be perfect for the warmer weather. I love the pockets - very handy!
I tried this pattern & also ended up with a very large dress. Not sure whether to try and salvage it or start afresh.

Oh what a perfect top! Nice work. I'm a little jealous that you're heading for more weather that necessitates such a breezy slip of loveliness, while we here are beginning to pile on the layers and wool.
