The sizing and fitting
You don't have to fiddle with the fitting. It's a semi-fitted top. Allow some ease. Use the bust measure to determine the size to cut because you want the armholes and sleeves to fit well.
I think I should have shortened the sleeves by around 1 cm after I finished the garment.
The fabric is the pretty printed cotton poplin from Spotlight. The print turns out to be much better than when it's on the bolt. I only used 1 meter of fabric (120cm width), and 35 cm solid colour poplin for the collar. It cost me around $10.

The only challenging step (compared to the rest of the construction) is installing the invisible zip on the side seam. Follow the instructions and you will be pretty safe.

I decided to make good use of my Bernina Narrow Hem Foot #64. The narrow hem is great on light weight fabric and for tops or blouses. As it uses less seam allowance, I shortened the pattern by 1 cm.
