And if you are a beginner, I would suggest sticking with a design that calls for a
medium-weight woven fabric instead of a knit for a first sewing project.
And just a reminder that if you plan to launder your finished top, remember to
preshrink your fabric first, especially if your fabric is 100% cotton or a cotton blend.
To preshrink your fabric, simply launder it using the same water and dryer
temperature in which you plan to launder your finished top. And if your fabric is
100% cotton, consider washing your fabric more than once because cotton fabric
doesn't always shrink its maximum amount with the first washing.
And one more tip: if the pattern is somewhat complex, you may want to consider
sewing a muslin of it first so you can adjust the fit before sewing your finished
blouse, especially if you'll be working with a more expensive fabric.
