While holiday shopping I saw it on sale at my local JCrew, but of course I couldn't buy it: the simplicity of its shape would make it oh-too-easy to sew.
It's suprisingly difficult to find a pattern matching this top's simple shape. New Look 6808, View A, approximates the look:
The 3/4 sleeve version of McCall's 5661, which I've made before, comes close, though it's a bit too fitted. I could leave out the back darts:
The best match may be to make a short, shirt version of the Burda dress I just made!

Did you receive any sewing swag from Santa? My mother completely surprised me with a dressform!
I also received new notions in my stocking, and my aunt gave me "How to Use, Adapt, and Design Sewing Patterns" by Lee Hollohan. It was a nice holiday, though it's also nice to be back home and back in the sewing room!
