I used fabric that has been in my stash for over 4 years. This was one of the final fabric purchases I made from Textile Studios before they closed up shop. This is a lovely mesh knit fabric with flowers. It was very nice to sew with, much better than I thought it would be. Now I wish I had more of it.
I was drawn to NL6150 when I first saw it on website. Reading several reviews at Pattern Review helped me deal with some fitting issues others had. Some adjustments I made were forward shoulder, and sway back. I reduced the length by 1.5 inches as I am short and many indicated that the pattern ran long. I find that NL patterns are always rather long on me as they are drafted for someone much taller.
Here are a few photos of the top when I wore it to work recently.
