Top from a Jacket

And here is the top under the jacket. In order to convert the jacket, I raised the armholes about 1", trimmed about 5/8" from the back neck, pinched out the shoulder seam where the shoulder pad went, decreased the circumference by about 1.5", put the CF line on the fold, fashioned a V neck, raised the hem about 1.5", and inserted a CB zipper.

I covered the edges of the neckline + armholes with fabric cut into bias strips. This fabric is a linen-silk blend from Louise Cutting.
