I just finished the Sunshine top. I can see why you all have been raving. It fits like a dream. I can see you all were right about how nice it is. I was able to put it together quickly and with the tutorial from Off the Cuff blog it was a sewing dream. I look forward to being able to make make a few more. I want to lengthen the sleeves to 3/4 and decorate the neckline. I seem to have found my sewing mojo this week. I finished another T from Connie Crawford B5215. It too will be a T N T. I had to lower the neck to a deeper scoop and add 4 inches to the body. It was wonderful feeling to have success have a long drought of not sewing.
May your summer sewing be as successful!

This is a great top to embellish. I had fun sewing rolleau and fabric covered buttons to mine. I must make another one this summer.

I started another topic with my question, but since you just worked on the sunshine top; did your pattern have the gathering notches marked? Mine does not and I rechecked several times to be sure I was not losing my mind.

The pattern did have markings but I had to really look for them. They were very pale. I thought at first it was a smear but it was very fine lines. I was so surprised the how well the pattern was drafted. It was much better than the big 4.

You can try B5219 first too.
I made one into a tunic length with elastic waist.
