Simplicity 2614

So, this is my very first top! I was really excited to find this pattern since it didn't seem to have a complicated collar and no buttons or other fasteners to worry about. What I didn't realize until I got the pattern home is that it had "gathers". When I saw this I was quite worried. In the end, the gathers were the least of my worries.

The toughest part for me was the collar facing! I had a lot of difficulty getting it to lie nicely inside. In the end, it still isn't completely flat, but it is okay and I will live with it.

I have already bought more material to try this one again, so hopefully it will work out better the second time around.

I think the fit is okay, but for my body type (large busted) I'm not entirely sure the gathered top is the most flattering. I plan to wear these under jackets mostly so I am okay with it.
