I don't know how I discovered this pattern, probably whilst wasting time on the Internet one weekend, but anyhow I loved the look of those loose gathered sleeves and drapey top. I thought it would be a great top for summer or for layering on those in between autumn days. Clicking on the link, I discovered that the pattern was designed by a New Zealand company called The Sewing Revival.
The pattern was duly purchased, printed out and pieced together. A quick trip to The Fabric Shop in Otara, resulted in some fabrics being purchased - a beautiful printed rayon and a textured cotton/rayon/wool blend. My bust is in between sizes but going on the overall width of the completed garment I made an XS. Possibly it fits a little too snug at the hips, so maybe next time I may try the S size.
Over all a quick and easy pattern to make, clear instructions, though I edged all my pieces first rather than after I had sewn seams (I don't have an overlocker) and I stay stitched the neckline before adding the facings.
I'm quite pleased with how this has turned out, and foresee a few more in my wardrobe's future.
