Style Arc Harlow top

I started making Style Arc Harlow Top  last year and then I finished it in January but the weather was too humid to wear it. The top will be a great trans seasonal piece. My main problem is taking the photos anyway here it is
 I love this fabric. I bought it from Tessuti's a few years ago. I'm not sure of the composition, but it was a cotton mix I think, I'm not sure. It was a little odd to sew and probably to stiff for my idea. However I was quite happy how the top turned out.
I did make a few adjustments . I decided I wanted a bit more swing to the top so I added 1 1/2 inches to the top and 2 inches to the length. I generally add to the middle to fit across my tummy.
I didn't make any adjustments on the sleeve width but had I did shorten the sleeves quite a bit.
Next time I make this I need to narrow the shoulders and bring in the neckline slightly. I didn't do a FBA because of the width I added.
Next time I may take the swing out and use a fabric with more drape. I will definitely add the to the length though. I will make this again.

One more picture. A new edition to our family my beautiful granddaughter.
