Simple pull over blouse

From sewing book Simple Chic, by Machiko Kayaki.
This is the easiest top pattern I ever seen and used.Simple and perfect for beginners.
This pattern is perfect for reversible tops or for sewing with lace.
The fabric I used is light cotton with silver glitter decoration.The fabric is little bit transparent so I lined the blouse with cheesecloth.I find that cheesecloth is very practical for lining summer garments.
The top is"dartless", so if you need bust darts you have to add them or forget this pattern.I do not have bust darts problem.:)
To embellish the top I made this transparent,delicate,organza fabric rose.

That's a pretty little sleeveless shell. Perfect alone or under a suit jacket.

Great top! I believe that the fun part of simple patterns is that you can splash out with the fabric.
The flower is a great detail!
