What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Well I really did like this top and I will be making it again in different colors with a couple of embellishments to them. Because of the sleeve variations short, ¾ and long I make them as the season change.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: After I made my sample / muslin I did extended the length of the front and back by 2 inches and I did not like the end of the sleeve so I did the change that to a flare cuff with elastic and the edge I did the edge stitch Love Love.
