According to the pattern measurements, this size 20 was going to be a little snug in the hips. I wanted it to be loose and flowy. So I added 2½ inches to the center front of the gathered section and 2 inches to the back. I left the neck yoke the same size as that part fit great.
The pattern photo shows this top ending at the mid-hip line. Mine ends at the lower hip line, but I'm quite a bit shorter and prefer this tunic length. The directions are rather sparse and illustrations for the few steps they outline. It's a quick, easy sew that makes sense on its own, though, without a lot of help. I love how neatly the neckline lays. It's been perfect for some of our warmer days already.
This is my last entry for Faye's Tops That Pop Sew A Long. I'm sure going to miss this. It's been a real motivator for me and I've loved seeing all the different tops that have been made. So many awesome entries!
Well, on to the next project, a much needed nightie. Happy sewing all.
