FO Friday

 I made another one of these drapey tops in a larger size.  The first two I made I gave away but this one will finally get to stay in my closet!   It was made from stash fabric- a low sheen polyester knit.
I will wear it with dress pants when I go out on a date.....

Anyone notice how much pattern sizes have changed?!  On the previous tops, I cut this one out on the size 12 pattern line like I always have (even though I buy size 10 at the store) and it was WAY  too small.  I cut this out on the size 16 mark this time and it fits just right!  They should forget to print the numbers at all and just use  bust/ waist/ hip measurements!
