Month of Tops #1

Well, I finally finished a top for the month of tops. Simplicity 3786.

I am not in anyway enamored of this top, but I don't hate it. Sometimes I need to wear something a couple of times before I figure out how I really feel. I've bought something I was totally in love with in the store, that just didn't make it after a few wears. (Fit was weird, fabric was itchy etc.) And the reverse has happened. I'm willing to give this a fair try.

This was the first time that I have made tucks (that I remember) and while the second side turned out much better than the first, I kinda like them. They add an interesting visual detail. For more info on this shirt, please check the Month of Tops site. (I have different blog entries for each site.)

Very cute! I really love pintucks as a detail and that top is no exception.
