I think this top evokes mixed feelings for me for several reasons. First, the pattern. It's long. Very long for short ol' me. I took 6½ inches off the hemline and it's still a little on the long side.
Second, the directions. The pattern has you leave the neckline unfinished since its a knit. I couldn't do that-- it just looked too unfinished. So I serger finished the edges of the neckline and ties. It's still not the neatness of a hemmed finish but it will do. Since I serged the neck, I just serged the hem and sleeve hems as well for a consistent "deconstructed" look.
Third, is my fabric. I got a wonderful drapey ITY from Fabric Mart back in November. I love it but it very thin and very drapey. I clings to every lump, bump, and bulge I've got. I've only got one bra at this time that gives a smooth enough silhouette front and back. The others cause more bumps. (I really need to go bra shopping).
I love how the sleeves are part of the upper bodice. I love the little ties, but really not thrilled with the serged edge. Not fond of the deconstructed look at all. So you see, I like it, but I also don't like it. I guess I'll decided after a couple more wearings. But on to more exciting projects!
