I went outside of my comfort zone and sewed up something new. I wanted another top to wear with the medallion yellow ponte knit long skirt.
I worked up a quick muslin for View A and decided to use a double knit fabric so I eliminated the invisible back zipper, the center back seam and cut the back & peplum on the fold. I raised the front split 2-1/2" for my modesty sake! I cut out a straight 16 and still took in the sides seams at the waist an additional 1/2".
This is an easy top to sew up once I made the muslin. All notches matched up and I am really liking this pattern.
I used 2 yards of a watercolor floral Liverpool double knit I purchased from Fabric Mart Fabrics. The fabric sewed up beautifully, didn't need much pressing and feels wonderful on the skin.

I really am liking this top. It was very comfortable and I may make another version, maybe a solid color and a size smaller too!
