Did you sew anything for the Spring Top Sew Along on Made by Rae

This is my "Aloha Tank". I love it. There are things I'd do differently next time but on a whole this is a wearable, comfortable top.

Pattern: Butterick B4132 View A

Fabric: Unknown. Do you know who the designer is? I bought it at a discount fabric store and it wasn't labeled. I believe it is cotton but could be wrong.

Oddly, the pattern I have is a larger size than I need so I did some altering after it was put together. It was a bit wide and short. Notice I had to add length AFTER it was complete. Not cool. But the crazy fabric pattern makes it less noticeable.

On a whole this top came together easily and the instructions are correct. I don't like how low the cowl neck is. This photo doesn't show exactly how revealing it is (thankfully).Spring top butterick B4132If I had this pattern in a smaller size I'd definitely make it again. I'm guessing if I started with my correct size the extreme cowl issue would be fixed. Final top rating?

    What a fun top! I think cowl necks in general can be a bit revealing. I’ve got one top that I used to wear to work where I’d spend the whole day with my hand on my chest.

    I actually like the bottom (where you added the fabric) I think it gives the tank some depth. I think it definetly works with this patter.

    The pattern piece for the front of the top folds down to self line the neck and the arm holes. There is a separate lining piece to line the upper portion of the back. Does that make sense? The pattern is just 3 pieces: front, back and back lining.
