Gingham Top

I got this (60s?) pattern about a year ago from ebay. I’ve been wanting to make something with it for a while, but kept getting distracted by other projects. Finally I decided I was going to make a blouse from it. I always seem to make dresses and don’t end up wearing them very often so I thought I’d try my hand at a top.

I saw a blue gingham sheet at DI and decided it would be the perfect fabric. So I started my top and then school started and life got crazy, but I finally finished it!

I never got around to making a little ribbon bow like the pattern said to, so I put a little bow brooch there instead.
