My take on the Great British Sewing Bee Drape Top

The last episode of the Great British Sewing Bee season 3 featured a draped japanese top.
It is apparently taken from the book Drape Drape 2 and is garment no. 4.
I have ordered a copy of the book and it is in the mail to me, but has not yet arrived.
So I decided to take a dolman sleeve blouse pattern, my classic tee pattern, some pins and a piece of fabric and try to make my own version. It looks like this so far and just needs a neck band adding. It looks quite nice on, and actually a lot less crazy than you might imagine.
The fabric is off white and gold lurex stripes and should work well with jeans or white trousers.
