Self drafted top

From the bodice sloper I came home with from the Fabulous Fit Retreat, I tried to make a shell and teach myself flat pattern drafting at the same time. I made bias from the fabric to go around the neck and armholes and serged all the seams.  Might try french seams for a cleaner finish next time.  I like the fabric and the top is going to go well with charcoal gray pants.  Next time I will also make the shoulders narrower and the armscye larger.  Getting closer to a great fit, now just need to get better at creating design details from a sloper.
