The basis for this top is an Ottobre long sleeved t shirt, but the main point of interest is the neckline, which I copied from a long since dead M&S top from many years back. The combination of the inset panel and forward shoulder give a nice effect to what would otherwise be a very basic top.
The fabric is a lovely soft viscose jersey in a warm dark grey shade.

The fabric was nice and wide, so I also managed to get a camisole out of my 1.5m - a nice bonus. Also an Ottobre pattern.

I love both of these!  Very wearable, and the colour is lovely.

Isn't it great when you manage to get a bonus second garment?

I do like that neckline.  Simple and effective.

Thanks, all. I can't take any credit for the design given that it's my own version of an old RTW top, but it's nice to be able to incorporate it into new tops.

@Acorn -when clicking on the white box (picture) and then click View, it brings up this page (will attempt to attach a screenshot) which tells me that the server has stopped responding.

Does it happen if you use a different browser?  And have you tried rebooting your computer?

@Acorn - I was in Safari where the problem was apparent.

I logged on via Chrome and it is working so far.

I will now shut down the iPad and see if it work, after shutdown, with safari.
