-At the ankle I used two rows of 1/4″ wide elastics
The top was made with a Anna Sui silk from moodfabrics.com that’s unfortunately sold out but here is an alternative that’s just as nice.
The pattern used for this top was Butterick 5948 view C with the following alterations:
-Added two inches to the length of the pattern
-Added a drawstring around the bottom hem
-Removed the sleeves and added a 1/2″ band on the neck and sleeves
-Added 2″ to the front pattern piece to create a 2″ fold at the neck, which gives me more belly room
-Added a 9″ invisible zipper at the back of the neck
