Almost don't need the zip but I put it in just to make it easier to get on and off.
Strangley, the sleeves were a bit tight, I let out as much of the seam allowance that I could. I measured the pattern and the sleeve width is actually 1 centimetre smaller than the upper arm measurement I gave Lekala, which is a bit weird.
Used a "fake silk" from Spotlight which looks fabulous, but after trying on the top (wearing it for only a minute) it was fraying through the seams!! So disappointing!! I had already finished the top so I went back and interfaced all of the seams... I don't know if it will help but there's nothing else I can do. Lesson? Don't buy fabric that frays excessively.
(I am pretty happy with my pattern matching, though!)
Overall, awesome pattern, just don't waste your time with bad fabric!
