The cotton does hang away from the body but makes a very cute top. On all three tops, I used the scoop neckline but raised it by one inch. The bottom of the front and back uses the curved hem pattern piece, and I added one inch to the length of the top.
The second top is a Mood Fabrics' Tribal Crepe de Chine . This fabric drapes nicely but still has a bit of stiffness to it, probably the 100% polyester. I liked the fabric for the design and the price - $5.99 a yard!

And the back view of the top, which has a center back seam, unless you make it from a knit and then no center back seam.
I was having so much fun making these, I went into my stash and pulled out a rayon challis from Imagine Gnats . This time I used the front curved hem for both the front and back, so no high-low look on this time. This fabric has the best drape and really looks great in the top.

There you have it three tops for Kaitlyn, she wears them well. Next up the Lou Box Top as a dress!
