In an ongoing effort to add more cute tops to my wardrobe, this is Simplicity 8694.

It's a really simple v-neck pullover top with cut in sleeves. I cut the size 14, and I lengthened it a couple of inches because I knew I would be tucking it in. 
I used leftover red crepe fabric from this dress.

When it came time to add the flounce to the sleeve, I decided I would jazz it up a touch with a subtle detail like "floating rick rack".
Whenever I discover some new and interesting sewing thing, I love sharing it. So, I created a tutorial for this technique over on the BERNINA WeAllSew Blog.

  1. Hi Erica, Very cute top and looks like it would be very easy to make. I wonder if you needed to do a FBA for this pattern or not? I'm a 38DD so I always wonder about this. The floating rick rack is just perfect for kicking it up a notch.

    1. I didn't need to do one. There is a good amount of ease across the chest. The finished measurement is on the pattern pieces. If I were you, I'd start at that point and decide from there. Thanks Connie!
