Have finally found top pattern that is not sleeveless, but with sleeves that look like they are short cap. Would make view A with view B sleeves, but wonder if rounded neck opening could be brought up to end of neck without causing major redrafting.

Thank you.

Sunshine, looks to me like it would take a bit of redrafting, because of the band. I'm hope someone else comes along and can give you some better advice

This pattern looks like it might fit your description. It's one of my tried and true patterns.

Do you ever adjust for that little wrinkle you get at the front of the armhole bust on a cap/T sleeve? Some fabrics it's more obvious.

Hi gramma b,

I never noticed the wrinkle before. I just tried several of the tops on and a wrinkle doesn't seem obvious to me.

Originally, I may have done a sloped shoulder adjustment on the pattern to get rid of some of that extra fabric.
