My Second Briar Top

Somewhat of a tee shirt - I love this little top.  This time I used a slinky 4-way stretch knit remnant and made a few pattern adjustments:
  • I decreased the center front circumference of the neckline 2" by tilting the 1" pass the foldline at the neck (did that make sense?)
  • I raised the neckline 1" starting at the center front foldline and tapering into the original shoulder
  • Added 3" to the cropped front length
  • Decreased the back full length version 3"
  • Decided to make this one with 3/4 length sleeves opposed to short because it's so cold at work
The 1 1/2yd remnant that was left over from this sleeveless vest that I made two summers ago.  It's Simplicity 2283.
 I never wore it because the royal blue was hard to match.  Now the vest has it's very own top - does this make it a twin set???
