vintage maya top

here's a top i made using Marilla's new Maya pattern.  i've had this wonderful vintage fabric for so long, i can't remember where it came from.  i'd been on the lookout for a basic pattern with clean lines and fun details to show off this crazy print...  when i saw Maya i knew she would be perfect.  i like the boxy shape and contrasting facings, but my favorite part (in this version) is where the hem switches from straight to curved at the side seams.  i made a size 8 with no adjustments (although, i did deviate from the instructions a bit, instead of french seams i serged the seam allowances so i could press them open and hem last).  i know it will be forever before summer rolls around again, but when it does this top will be worn lots.
