I've been working on this:
https://sewing.patternreview.com/Patterns/36441

@Holly Berry helped me with the FBA on the paper pattern early  last summer and the fabric was a purchase from @Francesca so you could say this was a TSP syndicate project 0_0

I've attached a pic which shows it more or less finished but only pinned closed so it will probably hang better when I've  and b/holes and attached buttons.

My tweaks:  I lengthened it but now think it could be a little shorter. 
I was too generous when I actually cut out the fabric as I could have made the midriff/waist a little more fitted.
Its a good pattern and I would definitely make it again in a plainer fabric which would show off a little more the princess seams.

@annieeg  that's lovely.  Love your fabric, and I had to click on the pattern link to be nosey.  That's another really pretty McCalls shirt pattern.  I may have to have another look... ;)

Well that's just great! I've been on TSP since 07.05 and already I've wandered off and ordered a pattern! Cos that's what I need...another pattern.  :[

@Elnnina It's got two sorts of princess seams, bust darts and the whole shebang! I'm going in!!!!  :o

Very nice annieg, and a great fit too. I'm sorely tempted....

Wrenkins if you have ordered McCalls 6076 - that is one of the patterns featured on the Full Busted DVD with Marta Alto - so I shall look forward to seeing how you get on with this.  Perhaps you need to book a trip over to the Chilterns!!!

Annieeg - well done that looks good,  now is this the start of a few more tops?  Look forward to seeing your progress nw you have a good fit.

I`ve had my eye on this pattern for a while.  If I remember correctly @DementedFairy mentioned it a while back as one of her favourites because it was so versatile
