I may not have picked out this print if I had not been forced down a specific colour palette by my other top, but I love it. It has a lot of great colours so I think it will really work in my wardrobe - current and future. One side of the selvedge is extra wide and helpfully has little boxes showing all the colours in the print so I have trimmed this off to take fabric shopping with me. Don't worry I won't be succumbing to bubblegum pink pants, but most of the colours are really workable.
The only change I made to this top was to add two long, narrow ties in the side seams as it is quite a boxy top.
The edges of the flounce are finished with a narrow zig zag which turned out to be a great technique ;
First, straight stitch on the seamline, fold and press. Use a narrow zig zag right on the folded edge of the fabric - experiment with samples to determine the size of the stitch you prefer.
Trim close to the stitching (very carefully!).

I will take some pictures of me wearing it tomorrow when I prepare my mini wardrobe contest entry at the 11th hour no doubt. I just have a skirt hem to finish and that's all the sewing done, but I do find that the reviews and taking half decent photos can take a while so I hope I can get it all done in time.
