Views A + C - Butterick 5525

This top is really easy to make after one trial. This week I made it in both views A and C
 

The red version was fun because I fixed the neckline and played with the fabric pattern print, so the sleeves had the same print. I'll get to the skirt in another post.
Then I decided to make up view C in a print, just in case the pleats were too much. The neckline sits better but doesn't make the pleats too prominent. I lengthened the pleats by 3 cms so they act like darts.

Your tops have turned out really well and the brown swirl fabric, is that a darker version of mine? Like how you have used the pattern on the sleeves of the red one.

This is the darker swirl fabric. I like how you used yours on the dress.
