I'm confined to my couch today and can't do a lot of searching with my phone. My sis in law wants a top like the pic below and I'm taking the easy way out and asking here :-) so any suggestions appreciated!

I don't see a picture. Is it an attachment or a link?

Well, this isn't working. I tried to insert the pic and can't do it from my phone. It's just a loose swing top with loose elbow to 3/4 sleeves that would be worn over a tank top. Kind of big neckline, could be off the shoulder. Sis in law has gained some weight and us looking to camouflage a tummy. Of course, she's always been a tall willowy very nicely dressed woman, and the tummy issue is really stressing her.

I just bought the Butterick 6024 pattern for those very reasons! This might work for you

Your SIL might like this. I made it last year and it became one of my fave tops. You could make the overlay longer over her arms if she wants more coverage there.

Both good options! I just realized we're going to need to go fabric shopping anyway, so I may park her at the pattern table at Joann's and let her pick. :-)
