Next on my tackle list...

Printed but not yet stuck together the Cashmerette Springfield. Which is a boxy sort of top. Comes with E/F cup. When I sewed a toile of another of the Cashmerette patterns I found it too long on the body, a tad big on the bust. I will probably size down, then grade out towards the hips. Also extend the length to the crotch.

If it ends up being horribly boxy then I might consider using some fisheye darts in the back to give it a bit of shape and pull it in slightly whilst still maintaining a skimming front. I will sew a toile first.

Also going to add sleeves. I'm thinking flutter to start, tulip for seconds.

Fabrics I have are:

Teal green powdertouch poly

Peachy matte satin

If I can perfect it on these two, I have some gorgeous raw silk check in red and blue from Cloth House in London that I've desperately wanted to make a boxy top from.
