Holiday Top, Simplicity 1806

I am coming up for air during this busy time of year.  Each year I think it will be easier and every year I am wrong.  I did take a moment to whip up a new top to wear to a few parties.

Simplicity 1806

Simplicity 1806, View D

Christmas lime green crushed velveteen from my stash. 
I think it has been in my stash for close to 10 years.  
Great fabric!

Fitting Notes:
I didn't do my normal FBA.  Didn't seem to need it.
Adjusted the shoulder seam for my wonky shoulders.
Wished I had used View B or C's back.  
This top has a cute pleat in the back, but it is cut lower than a normal neckline. 

Low front +Low back=Hard to keep in place top

So glad the shoulder fit well or it would slide all over me.

I have worn the top to a few parties and I get a ton of comments.  Must be a winner!
