I am loving the way this top fits so far. it's far more fitted than most clothes i own but I think if I lengthen the sleeves to a 3/4 length and make it a dark neutral( navy) I can wear it most of the year here.(lets face it, it never gets THAT hot here at all. I have got this cotton knit, it's really really stable and barely stretches (just a tiny amount) and is incredibly wrinkle resistant.
I bought the fabric I want to use from the fabric shop in Brunswick, Melbourne...it was a while ago now...but i remember loving the place and the staff were really friendly and obviously really excited about sewing their own projects to. :-)needless to say I will be back on the next trip over.i think this top definately needs something wrinkle proof.
