Flutter Sleeve Top A Wearable Easter Egg Muslin

My wanting this flutter sleeve top got me digging through my stash of patterns.  After a day full of looking at patterns I couldn't find one I thought looked like the style of the top pictured in the magazine.  Taking a closer look at the top I realized it was just a tank top pattern with flutter sleeves added.

I then remember my Easter dress from 2013 The Butterick 5030 dress had flutter sleeves!  I just matched that sleeve pattern to my tank pattern and I think it came out pretty good. 

Inspiration Version-Polka Dot Flutter Sleeve Top
I had a yard of this purple knit fabric.  It has a strange texture, like kid's pajama fabric. Felty feeling.  But it was perfect for a muslin.

The print reminds me of a decorated Easter egg................

I rocked this neckline!  How come when you don't care, it comes out perfect?  I just made a usual neck band then serged it to the neck and topstitched.

The back isn't lined up perfect but it's behind me so who cares.

I have matched this top up with both my purple McCall 7254 Cardigan and also my Butterick 5760 .  I am thinking that I will wear this top often.  Even if I look like an Easter Egg!
