Jemima's Balloon Sleeve Top

I absolutely love this top. I will definitely be making another, now that I am aware of how to construct the cowl neck. The pattern was not clear at all for constructing the cowl neck for a beginner, but with the help from CKC on Facebook and a lot of thinking, I got it!
