Mustang Fancy Sailor Top

I spotted this 'Mustang' fabric by (you guessed it) Cotton & Steel at a store in Ely and it was a must have. I turned it into a Fancy Sailor Top but this time I graded the size from a Large around the bust to a Medium at the waist and bum. This meant there is a lot less fabric floating around than my first attempt. This time I also followed the instructions on how to baste (I couldn't work it out before) and it meant the gathers were much more even and controllable. I also managed to complete the neat inside yoke by stitching in the ditch which was another skill I had picked up since my first attempt.
