Itch to Stitch Seychelles Tops ~ Metallic and Voile Versions

The new Seychelles Top from Itch to Stitch was perfect for a piece of metallic fabric I've had in my fabric collection for a few years.  I was drawn to the v-neck, and the narrower shoulder combined with small pleats on the sleeve cap. The PDF pattern is an easy-to-sew pullover top with a v-neckline, cup sizes, and long or short sleeve options. One thing I appreciate about this indie pattern company is the recent expansion of their size range.  This pattern ranges from size 00 to 40.   Both tops I sewed are a size 8D with short sleeves. The gold one is a cotton/metallic twill I purchased in 2017 from Emma One Sock , and the black and pink one is a cotton voile fabric I purchased from Fabric Mart Fabrics about 18 months ago.
