I love the Cake Patterns. Yes, they do take a bit of thought, sewing knowledge and willing to play around with sizes. 1. Take proper measurement. Don't worry about the numbers you will be the only one that knows. 2. A French curve ruler is very helpful 3. Go to the Sewing Cake website to see other projects, get answers to questions and see pictures and helpful suggestions. 4. I recommend that you use a good quality of tracing paper when you are making your pattern. I make notes on my pieces and date them. The date helps remind me if I need to re measure.

I have made this top before in two different fabrics and wear both often. This time I wanted the v-neck to be at the front and added a bow details. I feel the bow adds a bit of dressiness to the top. I also extended the length of the top.

I love the shape of this top. I like my curves so I moved the pattern in at the waist and flared it out over the stomach and hips. I made a neckband and doubled stitched it. The sleeves and the hem was double turned and stitched. The material is a lovely burnt orange, red, and turquoise. It has a great weight to it but not thick; so it drapes. It looks great with jeans or a skirt. It is great for traveling as it washes well and could be worn with different items.

I find that the longest part of making this tops was when I was measuring, tracing and cutting out the pieces but once that is done it's quick to sew up.
