OK let's face it: this makes me look fat. After I made this, I mentioned to my husband and son that I thought it made me look fat. My son said, "yes it does." I think 10 is a good age to discover that you should not agree when a woman says something makes her look fat.
This top has a ridiculous amount of ease. I cut a 14, which is my usual size--corresponding to about a size medium in ready to wear. I messed up when I was cutting this and cut an 8 in the sleeves. As I was sewing, I found I needed to take in the sides quite a bit. This sucker runs huge!
