Stunning Stenzo

When I saw this fabric, I had to have it.  I know it might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I love the colours in it.  I've made my favourite Ottobre Woman pattern.  It's the "pintuck top" from 02/08, pattern #2.    This pattern suits my plus size figure very well.  The pintucks give extra fabric over the chest and the slight A-line cut hides the bulges, but at the same time the top does not look like a tent.  This is my third time I've used this pattern.  I've gone for 3/4 sleeves since the weather is cooling down.
