I recently visited an old friend who is currently clearing out her stash of patchwork and quilting fabrics. Most of the pieces are cotton from a variety of sources and I was delighted to unearth many swatches of Liberty Tana Lawn. I was even more pleased to find a length of just 1.5 metres x 90 cms width in a delightful floral print that just happened to be complimented by a tiny pin spot design with similar Blue background.

Holding my breath, I placed the pattern pieces for what is my current favourite top onto the fabric to find that there was just sufficient to make up the design.

My usual alterations, inasmuch as I omitted the centre back seam and button and loop fastening also extending the length by just over an inch. As a simple enhancement, I added two self-covered buttons to the accent rectangle below the contrasting yoke.

Hey presto, an afternoon of gentle sewing produced yet another delightful top for my Summer wardrobe.
