A preview of my new top

Before entering my new top in "Spring sew-a-long 2012" competition, I want to share it with you.
As you can see in the photos, it's a super simple model, ideal for a beginner, but very satisfying if I consider how it fits well on my not so perfect and "abundant" body. This was my first time with knitted fabrics and I had no problems with it! Happy me!
And the most important thing about this top is that I reached a goal with it: I won my fear!

This is me wearing it in our bedroom:

And here I was wearing it in our super windy&sunny balcony (colors altered a bit):

A detail of the sleeve:

When I'll take a good photo of it, I'll submit it in the Flickr pool of the competion and I'll write a post with detailed informations (fabric, pattern, etc).
I hope all these posts about my new "top mania" isn't annoying you, because I have a second top to write about! :P

It's made of a wihite knitted fabric with blue, red and azure stripes. Probably it has an 80s style. Or nautical? Uhm, you will judge.

I probably have no chances to win the "spring top sew-a-long" competition, because a lot of skilled dressmakers are contributing with their lovely and complex tops. But, hey, it's just for fun! :)

Please, be honest with me and write a comment about this top. Do you like it? What do you think about the fabric?
