Spring Top Sewalong Reader's Choice award last year (has it been a year already?!), I chose one of the gorgeous designs from Colette Patterns: the Rooibos. There's so much to love about this dress--piping, pockets, fitted midriff, work appropriateness, etc. The design is very close fitting, and since I was mostly concerned with the fit of the bodice, I decided to abbreviate the dress to make a top for my wearable muslin.
The fabric is an interesting, thick-ish faux-eyelet polyester. I don't usually wear polyester, but the fact that I wore this top to work, lunch with a friend and then grocery shopping before I took the photos, attests to its functionality (at least in the no-wrinkle department. It's also a miracle that I didn't get any barbecue sauce on it :) The "right" side is this cream color, with flesh color in the eyelet "holes". The "wrong" side is the reverse, so I highlighted that with the little mini-collar.
