Oh, what a great choice of fabric! It makes for a very beautiful top.

Nice as a jacket. Neat idea on the dress - red velvet for that holiday party?

There is no elastic in this top. the panels are just gathered on the top and bottom. I suppose if you wanted to though, you could put elastic, but it doesn't really need it. It is comfortable.

Very classy, festive look. Are the underbust gathers done with elastic?

I bought this pattern to make a hot weather top or dress out of some kind of meshy, floaty stuff back when it was 100 degrees with 98% humidity and never got around to it. Now I have to re-think this as a Jacket for winter. What a great idea! Yours is beautiful.

I love this. The burn out velvet is a perfect choice. I guess I must get this pattern now.
