This top was drafted to incorporate curved shoulder darts. Initially, I was planning on a fitted blouse, but halfway through drafting I changed my mind...and instead I have ended up with this lovely, cool linen top.
I did a little bit of tone-on-tone embroidery on the CF seam. The CF seam has no shaping. I put it in to make binding the V neckline a little easier.
The centre back has a slit opening. You can see that I used the same subtle embroidery from the front down the centre back seam, which has some shaping.
Other details include a back hem a little longer than the front. The hems are squared off, with short splits at the side seams.
Here is a modeled shot. The top is a loose, boxy top, but I feel it is much more interesting than just a box.
The linen was purchased from The Fabric Store, several years ago.
