As I previously mentioned, there was just enough rayon/lycra jersey to eke out a top for myself.
Vogue 1020 is the asymmetric side gathers.
Pattern Magic books?
I've also made McCall's 6400, another similar Pattern Magic-like top. That was a fit disaster. I made a size Medium (12-14). The neck and shoulders were huge; the ease around the hips prevented the side from scrunching up as shown on the pattern envelope. The model must be wearing a top several sizes smaller than her measurements would place her.
Vogue 1020 is much better constructed (stays in the seam!) and accurately-sized for the style. Guess which pattern is out of print and which one is still for sale? Sigh. Snap up used copies of Vogue 1020 on the internets before they become rare.
By the time I finished this top, I had only small scraps left. I wonder if I could enter this in the Stash Contest? This piece had been marinating in my fabric collection for several years and I used up all of it.
