Anyway, back to the top. I decided to use this Simplicity pattern.
Funny thing, I originally bought this pattern to make a cardigan, but never made it. But I have made the top before in February, 2010, and wear it all the time. The first time I made this top, I made a size medium straight out of the package, with the only alteration being to narrow the shoulders a little. This is something I have to do on all tops I make. The fit of the top was great. This time, I decided I wanted more of a tunic type, so I made it a little looser.
Here's the fabric I used. It's a really pretty knit print from my stash; I believe I got it from Fabric.com a couple years ago. It has a nice hand & is the perfect weight for a spring top. And is SOOO comfy to wear! I love this fabric.
Here are some pics of me wearing my new top.
Here's the first top I made from this pattern.
