Simplicity 3887 - Spring Top #1

Here is my first 2009 spring top. This pattern is really simple and yields a cute result. I used a green crinkled cotton which was pretty lightweight. I made a French seam for the first time. I originally made view C but cut 5 inches from the bottom. I liked the top shorter. I also did the flutter sleeve from view E. I originally wanted to add a few fabric flowers from the book Fun to Wear Fabric Flowers. After a few failed attempts I unraveled the flower and created this pleated design.


I thought it added something "extra" to the top and went with it. I wore it to a baby shower today and my baby sis told me I looked cute.
