I've been trying to branch out and make more tops recently. I bought a couple of patterns last time when Spotlight had their $5 sale on patterns. Whenever these sales are on I go through the draws with my list of patterns and mostly they aren't there. Then I just start trawling through the drawers at random to see if anything takes my fancy. This is where I found the New Look 6187. I liked the looked of the mandarin collar version.
Alas I was not happy with the end result. Perfectly easy little top to make, but I didn't make the top long enough and also the sleeves are very boxy. At first I thought I wouldn't wear it, but I guess it is wearable I'm just not l-o-v-ing it.
As the basic style of the top is nice I might give one of the other versions a go in the longer sleeve and add a couple of inches to the length.
Material was a quilting cotton that I've had for about 12 months. Funny how it matches the diagram on the front of the pattern.
