Loving the bishops sleeves!

Simple yet eye catching.

Really liked all the options with this top.
I made the regular sleeve with the shorter cuff. In the hip length option without a band, out of rayon spandex.
The only adjustment i had to make was to lengthen the sleeve, but i have to do that for all long sleeves, so that was no biggy. It was very easy to do. The sleeve has a beautiful drape to it.
The pleasantly wide neckline stays on my shoulders and doesn’t show my bra strap. Win, win!

Easy, classy top

I love this top! I made it from a Viscose Lycra blend and it is exactly what I had hoped. I made the tall height hip band bersion with regular banded sleeves. It is so pretty and will get a lot of wear.
