Before my holidays I showed you this top I want to knock off. Here you can find the original on www.eluxury.com. The tie and arm-opening bands are topstitched. Thinking about what was the main issue to make this top I found that a pattern was needed with a close fitting arm opening. The cowl in front and back could be made the front pattern piece wider and longer. I decided to use this Vogue pattern, that I made last year.
(I only wore the dress for the first time yesterday, as the weather was never good enough after I made it).
As you can see this dress has a close fitting arm opening.
Here is what I did to the pattern.
