Sewing - A Summer top (Simplicity 4552)

I couldn't sleep last night, so got up and made a summer top, using one of the patterns from the Simplicity 4552 pattern pack.

It was a straight forward make.  My top half is two sizes smaller than my hips, so I needed to alter the pattern a little when tracing it onto paper, but it fits ok.

I think I will use the same pattern and extend the length to make a summer dress.  The longest part of the whole make was sorting out the pattern.
