The fabric is a crushed panne' velvet from Joann Fabrics. The color is called "princess blue" and is such a pretty color. Even though it's 100% polyester, it looks nice and feels great to wear. And it comes out of the washer and dryer looking great. For the neckband, I used a black thin stretchy knit.
The pattern is McCalls 7247. I lengthened the front by 3 inches
I'm not in love with this top. The fit is not quite right, so I'm constantly rearranging the overlap. I didn't feel like the overlap was secure and would stay in place, so I wore a black silkie camisole underneath.
Now some cute puppy pictures:
