I altered for thiis top.
1. downgraded to size 4(this pattern includes size 8-20)
2. eliminated side seam gethering
3. eliminated collar
4. shortened arm and bodice length
The shoulder doesn’t fall even by accident becuase it’s close fitting and fabric doesn’t stretch. but i wanted to give a little more secure for front and back neck line so i inserted as long as front|back neck line elasstic band in front and back neck folded facing. i didn’t want any gathering from elastic band since my fabric has such a beautiful pleats.
This image was in my mind since i found my fabric. i was gonna to make a dress but ended up with top which has more chances to wear for me.
