Another Beatrix

I made another Beatrix top this week.  The fabric I chose is a light weight yarn dyed plaid - is it a gingham?  It has a very soft feel and great drape.  It was on a shelf of assorted out-of-season fabrics.  When I saw it a light bulb went off in my head.

I made view A again, but I added length to the sleeve.  I was torn between adding a button cuff (like the Oliver and S Gallery tunic) or making an elastic cuff.  I opted for the elastic cuff because I like being able to push my sleeves up and down with a minimum of fuss.

I love this shirt.  This morning was cool in my area and so I kept it on for quite a while!  This will definitely be in heavy rotation this fall!
