I got the pattern for this top in Virginia over Christmas. It was smooth sailing until I got to the bottom hem. Part-way through I sort of figured out how to pull on it so the hem would lay flat, but it's not pretty close up. I don't think the bad parts will be too noticeable, though, when it's on. It's supposed to have applique giraffes on the side without pockets, but obviously that would have been weird with the whale fabric. I didn't think it was necessary to make up a whale applique to go on that side. The whales are cute all by themselves.
