The tissue weight knit came from Fabric.com. I love the mint green combined with grey in this print, but working with tissue knits is not for the impatient! For View D, I lengthened the bodice by 3 inches before attaching the waistband, and I finished the neckline with a self-fabric neckband instead of folding over and stitching down as the pattern instructs. I actually finished the front and back neckband before stitching the shoulder seams together so that I wouldn't have any puckering issues at that seam.
What I love about this pattern is the long fitted cuff on the sleeves. Last night I bar-b-qued with friends, and there were a lot of mosquitos out. I knew I would be fairly protected with my torso well covered. I also felt I wouldn't get too hot with the loose fit on the bodice. Yep, a comfy casual top indeed!
