This is a very popular pattern among DIY Bloggers and one that’s been in my stash for a long time too – Vogue Pattern V8977.
There’s something about shades of green this year that has my senses going absolutely crazy!
This top started out as a dress, but quickly ended back up as a top only…
I hand stitched these buttons, found at JoAnn’s.
Overall, the adjustments paid off. I really like this top.
