I made this top for the monthly stitch theme in May which was Inspiration Nation.
I saw this pattern being used by another blogger with chambray top half and viscose lower half and thought it would be great for summer. So went on sewdirect.com and bought it…. With a few other patterns.
I went to my local fabricland and they had no chambray in the whole shop.  Luckily a bright stripy fabric caught my eye and I decided to make it from one fabric and I’ll do the other version when they get new stock.

I made view D with the longer back and short sleeves.  It had ties on it but I set them a little too low and when you tied them up it made the long back all ruche up together so I felt it looked better without them.
I will try and make view A next time in this style and make it less wide at the back.

Stand up collar which looks a bit wrinkled in this photo but is okay up close

I used clear buttons so you can see the button hole stitching so might change to wooden ones
