My first top in Faye’s “Spring Month of Top” sew along is finished. And I’m quite happy with the result. Though I had the association with a spotted dog a few days ago, that is gone now, and I’m quite happy with it. I use the expression ‘artsy polka dots' now that Gwensews used in her comment.
The blouse is lacking one button, but that will be taken care of later this week. The full PR review is here.
I do like the pattern, but think that the pleat will more clearly a design element when using a plain fabric. I didn’t do a proper fba, but increased from size 40 in the neck/shoulder area to 42 at the front (bottom of the armhole, this should be done to the sleeve too!) and to 44 in the hip area. There it is snug, but I will wear this tucked in, so no real problem.
