This pattern is great for a beginner. There are only 3 pieces and you get to practice using bias tape. I also like it because it's one of the few tops that doesn't have to be made out of a knit fabric, which can be difficult for beginners to work with.
One of my shoulder seams is a bit wonky because I have broad shoulders and I always feel like the armpit holes in my clothes are too small, so I cut the the fabric around the armpit and it sort of turned into a mess. I'm not sure how I feel about this fabric, either. Wadder.
