Notes Body is made from rayon fabric with a nice weight and (of course) good drape. The collar is from a cotton slub voile.
This is a nice easy top. I really like the shape of the bodice. As Lekala patterns are quite often snug on my torso I made the side seams a bit straighter than the pattern. One thing I really like about Lekala patterns (does their algorithm take birthdate into account for the effects of gravity on breast tissue?) is that have not yet had to lower the side dart to match my bust.
I just attached the bow with a safety pin so I can use it or not depending on what else I am wearing.
It is coming into winter here so I will have to put it away, but I think this will get lots of wear come next summer. Lovely top.
