    Bronte top


    I love the style of the this top – the neckline is so unusual and pretty. Instructions are great and it came together well – I’m sure most people would make it in half a day, but I don’t sew fast!
    It does have a lot of negative ease across the bust, but I found it fitted well on the shoulders, so if you don’t like tops too close fitting, you may want to grade up for that area.
    A great top, I love it.
