It snowed here a few days ago and mini-me had a snow day from school so I whipped up this top in the morning. This is a top that I designed my self with inspiration of a RTW top I saw. I used my own measurements and copied the sleeves from a top I already have in my closet.
I like the fit but when I sew this again, I will make the neckline a little bigger.
I also think next time I set in the sleeves I will try a different technique and sew with the 2 piece bodice lying flat before I sew the side seams together.
I sewed without pulling this fabric so I would not have that lettuce effect on the material.
I used a warm & cosy knit material. I think I will try & draft a pattern for this top as I really like it! My Model (middle child) & girlfriends thought I bought this top!
We had fun playing in the snow! It was all gone by that night though! That's Vancouver weather for you - snows one day & sunny the next - love it!

The straps are black stretch cotton and I serged the sleeves and hem. I must of taking this top off at least 10 times to get the straps to fit (that's with me taking measurements too) I really need a dress form!
