A little bit of nip and tucking...

...helps to add interest to this latest top of mine!
Over the last few months I have seen a few tops that have grabbed my attention. Not 'WOW! Look at me tops', but just some simple lines that flow well in a top. Tops along the lines of these...
Calvin Klein blouse... a sleek looking Calvin Klein ...

 ...a Michael Kors ...







... this little Macy's knock-off. 





...and this $410 (yes, no misprinting!!!) pleated neck top - yes, just the top and not the whole outfit and accessories!!!...
Pleated Neck Top
Butterick 5354 a Fast & Easy top required nothing more than a scant .80cm of fabric (or 7/8 yard in your language!) to easily replicate a similar style top to all the above...
It had all the elements of the above tops, a minimalist looking pullover shell top, sleeveless, and unlined. The pleats at the neckline give the top a lovely boost. It is actually a very comfortable basic for work, or weekend wear. 

Definitely be making up a few more of these for summer - quick, easy and light to wear ... J
