    I loved this top and see many more in my wardrobe. I made a quick and dirty muslin out of some cheap broadcloth for size and possible alterations. I made the 20C. I think a good choice. I decided to drop the dart by 1 full inch. I also did a high stooped shoulder adjustment of about 3/4”. This was not difficult and I placed it in the middle of the back bodice yoke. The fabric was a recycled fabric discovered in the basement of a 98 year old woman. She was wealthy and retired so who knows the provenance of the fabric. I imagine it to have been purchased in Hong Kong at least 50 years ago. Silk brocade with lots of gold.
