Retro top

Well this isn't really a retro top, but the fabric sure reminds me of some of those wild colors in the 60's and 70's.  The  pattern is  Vogue 1247 and I really  like it, it's a pull over top, made with rayon fabric, so it's really drapes well.  Because of  the bright colors I chose some faded jeans to wear it with, kinda tone it down a bit. Instructions for the top calls for french seams, but I think next time I make this top, I'll omit the french seams and zig zag or use my pinking shears on the  edges.  It tends to get a little bulky right in the middle where all the seams come together.  Other than than I'm very pleased with the outcome.
