I made this top using a cotton purchased from JoAnns last year and the pattern Simplicity 2593. The pattern was fairly easy to put to together. The hardest part was arranging the neckline but I think even a beginner should be able to pull this one off successfully. The only adjustment I made was to use purchased bias to tape to finish the armholes rather than cutting it from the fabric. I've worn it once, with a belt at the waist for a more flattering silhouette.
