Since this pattern is a size 8 and I am not, I could see extending the size by adding a few inches as needed and adding seam allowance. This looks like a very comfortable top and it could easily be dressed up or down depending on the fabric you use...denim or cotton for everyday, or a satin, or sparkley fabric for more formal wear. Great idea and design, thanks for sharing!
