I didn't make a muslin and then they turned out to be too low and too gaping in the back. So I pinned out the gaping, removed the back yoke, cut a new yoke about 5 cm higher at CB taping to nothing at the side seams and reinserted the yoke. A bit of a hassle, but it turned out okay. Next time I sew these, it would probably be good to add a little to the height of the sides as well. I left off the belt loops, as I never wear belts. These would be perfect in a non-stretch fabric, but stretch out a bit over the day (in spite of using non-stretch interfacing in the waist-band), so I am considering adding some side tabs.
The fabric is a lovely quality, very smooth denim.
The top was designed to use a tiny remnant of fabric with a peacock feather print. My shirt-dress was the last garment I sewed before the holidays, and the pattern was still out when I was packing, so I took it with me and used it to make this top. I left off the collar and played around with the front bib bit to create a pleated, wrap sort of bib insert.
The wrap bit looked lovely but was a bit of a wardrobe malfunction. I think sewing wraps closed loses some of the effect, so I sewed a stay on the inner layer instead, which you can see if you look closely not quite halfway down the bib. It works rather well, but the first time I tried to photograph this top was on the beach in gale force winds, and it doesn't actually hold up in gale force winds...so I won't be wearing this in a cyclone.
