I'm always partial to knit tops for stretch comfort winter and summer.
But due to lack of local feel-the-fabric options--like many we only have JA and Hancocks--I am looking at wovens.
I printed the Colette top for one, any other favorites and the wovens you choose, mainly casual? Silkies, for instance, have all the pretty prints, but seem dressier and less breathable for warm weather.

I've given up on knit tops mostly..they show too many figure flaws!
My current favorite is a Burda
Burda 7368

I've made view B about 7 times now and recently dumped two of them as they were worn out. I like the length as I do wear leggings, but they are are also fine with jeans....On some, I've left off the bib portion and just cut straight up and made my own neckline. If you don't like the length, it's easy to alter. I did use this pattern for the One Pattern Many Looks contest. Here's my review and some of the variations
review with variations

Current versions in the works are a flannel and a Liberty cotton.

This is not the first time not the second time but the third time this question has been asked in about 18 months and I always look forward to the responses. I hope you find what your looking for.

For me I'm looking to get myself two or three really good fitting tops (a loose top, a fitted top both pullover and a button down shirt unless I figure out how to turn both tops into button downs). If I could get that I could throw out a large portion of my pattern collection, I'd rather draft my own details then hoard I mean collect patterns.
