Thanks Kathryn .... I do have a longline vest that I wear with my work shirt, that I think will look good over the top of this one. And looking at it critically, I think I agree with blue mooney's suggestion to shorten the top, so I plan to take a inch or so off the length and see if that improves the overall fit. (blue mooney all critique is appreciated .... and you certainly haven't upset me). Actually I can't figure out how this one ended up so long. The dusty pink one I made is the same pattern with a few modifications, but I didn't mess with the length for that one. This blue one was one of a batch of patterns I cut out in bulk at the start of the holidays, and I wonder if I was planning something with the length, that I neglected to commit to memory.
I am wondering though ...... The black tunic top for my interview outfit, is a lovely piece. It would look nice over this top, but I am thinking about making the same pattern in a lovely heavyweight marle grey ponte that I picked up a while ago, perhaps with a bit of alteration to the collar. Any thoughts on this idea?
