Zebra Fill Top - Pauline Alice Cami Top

This is probably my 3rd or 4th go at the Pauline Alice Cami "dress" pattern and I am just over the moon with it. It's probably my most used pattern in such a short period of time. I want it in every colour, every fabric and every length! 

I cannot encourage you enough to try this pattern, I truly believe t deceives MORE hype that it gets! 

Pattern Size: I cut the 40 and it's a pretty comfortable fit. 
Fabric Used: I actually used a lightweight quilting cotton that picked up from a local quilting supply shop in Sydney. At $22/m it was a little pricy, but what can I say, I feel in love with the print!

Was It Easy To Follw: Yes, the combination of the printed instructions as well as the online Sew-Along, which has close up colour images, helped me to FLY through making this the first time - I actually got it out in about 5-6 hours - and now I don't even need to look at the instructions. 

Alterations Made: As you can see I decided to shorten the pattern into a top and I also added some fun ruffles down the centre by gathering two strips of fabric, overlocking the raw edges (which I wish I had done in a white thread) and sewing it to the button placket. 
My first time making it, I took it nice and slow doing the collar, because it was my first one and I was a bit nervous. I also decided to forego the under collar on this version as I felt I didn't need it, I was more flattering/ comfortable to have a flat lying collar.
