Summer Top

Remember my crush on the schoolhouse tunic in black and white check back in spring top week? Well, here is my attempt. My fabric (from Joann's) is not so drapey - the trapeze-type body isn't working for my mama body, so I plan to do some darts in the back to gather it in a bit. But Mr. Sycamore declared it does not look maternity-esque, so it is a start. Used the Market Shirt pattern (meant for a much lighter voile) from Weekend Sewing - had to lower the neckline considerably and in retrospect I would have made the sleeves shorter and the body longer, but overall I like it!
