Summer top from "Camisole & One Piece"

This top is from the Japanese pattern book camisole and one piece. I had to completely seam rip the first incarnation because it was too big around the chest. It looked terrible, even though I had already altered the pattern for my American frame.

On the mannequin, this doesn't look half bad (haven't hemmed or sewn the side seams yet) - but I'm not certain this is a look I should sport.

sorry for the mini hiatus!

I reupholstered a chair last week. I can't even show the before picture because the previous cushion was non existent.
I used Better Homes & Garden upholstery fabric, and a polyester fill cushion instead of foam.
