Anyway I consulted my pattern stash and pulled out the Waffle patterns Vanilla top. I discovered this pattern company through a previous years indie pattern month, see an interview with the designer here. I think I bought this on black Friday last year so it's nice to finally get round to using it.
The front and back pattern pieces look crazy when they are laid out on the fabric, which was kind of exciting because it wasn't like anything I'd ever sewn before! The instructions were good and I thought the design of the neckline binding was really good and gave a nice finish for a V-necked top in jersey.
