Amazing how something 12 years old can STILL be so relevant!  That's why Donna Karan has always been fabulous and known for knowing how to fit a "woman's" body and why her designs are timeless!
I needed something to wear out that would be appropriate for a nightclub atmosphere, but I wanted to still look chic and sophisticated.  I remembered that I had been saving this pattern for the right moment.  I don't know why I hadn't at least sewn the top.  I really think I was concentrating on the skirt so much that the entire pattern had fallen by the wayside.  And I really wanted a reason to pull out this great sequined pencil skirt.  
That's when I rethought this pattern for the top.  It paired perfectly with my skirt!
This was a simple project to make.  I made it the same day I planned to wear it.  The back and front are one solid pattern piece in which you are to cut two.  I sewed both pieces, right sides together.  Then I sewed the side seams with the serger.  Voila!  I was done!  See, simple!
Wearing:  Skirt:  ASOS Sequined Pencil Skirt (last seen here); shoes:  Zara; belt:  Kenneth Jay Lane (similar to this); purse:  Urban Expressions.
