|Bird top with gathered neckline
|This top is quite a bit shorter than the one in the illustration, comes to 26cm below the waist whereas the effect on the illustration would be more like 35-40cm below the waist for my height (1.71m).
This fabric is a light cotton lawn, with a pattern of birds in flight.
I am still pleased with the result, this is very different to styles I normally wear and feels as though it will be cool and comfortable. I have the option to wear with a belt, like the illustration, if I choose. The adjustable neckline gives lots of options between a snug, gathered neckline and a wider off the shoulders one.
