I like that. It's a bit similar to the Style Arc Jules, but without the deep V neckline. I might go for your higher version next time. Good summer sleeves too.
Where did you get that nice fabric and what is it?

Cotton will be good for the warm weather - and aren't you lucky to have a local source of fabric!

Lovely top, had to laugh at Boyes being a department store.

I buy Moon thread in my local Boyes, and once got some elephant themed batik fabric, which is a lovely cotton.

We have six Boyes stores within 15 minutes driving time and about four more within half an hour.
It is hit and miss.... I bought a nice fleece backed zip up hooded sweatshirt for £12 on Friday... couldn’t have bought the pattern and zip for that amount.

Oh, I like the mini-sleeve. I need to make tops with cap or mini sleeves like this. Great top.
