The Lily Top
Lily is an easy to sew drop sleeve top with a pretty ruffle detail starting mid-way up the sleeve, curving as it reaches the neck.
Any lightweight woven fabric. Use rayon, viscose or crepe for a very floaty top. Another option is cotton lawn for a breathable top that will be easier to sew than the drapier fabrics.

Use your High Bust to get the best fit across your neckline and shoulders. To get your High Bust measurement, measure around your body, directly under your underarms.
Fitting tips for larger busts/cup sizes: You would then do a Full Bust Adjustment (FBA) only if your full bust measurement is in a higher size category to your high bust.
