I really love this pattern, especially the long straps that join into the short row shaping. It hugs into the body shape really nicely. The split joins of the side seams make for a nice modern finish. Being made from a heavier cotton the drape is real! If I'm being honest, somehow this top came out much too large for me to wear on its own so I tried it with some different looks. I want to make this top again in a lighter cotton and a size smaller to allow for the extra ease. Ideally I'd like to wear this as a summer top but at the moment will wear more as a vest! Stay tuned for version 2.0!
