I found this really cute little top over at Anthropology:

This cute little springy top is very feminine with tucks and cotton lace trim.  Price tag:  $78.00.  It doesn't specifically state that the fabric is a woven and a knit but it sure looks like it to me.  I kinda like the idea of mixing the two fabrics.  To see a close up of the details, go to and search for Rae Pintuck Tunic.

This is the Aida Top pattern by Sew Liberated.  This top would translate very well into the Anthropology top.  You could even mix two fabrics like the inspiration piece. For the tucks, you will want to first decide how many tucks you want on each side of the front.  Cut the fabric into a piece large that you can stitch your tucks and then lay out the pattern piece.  This will be better to cut the two fronts separately.  You can add any additional trims on at this time also.  Stitch up the top following the pattern instructions, then add the final trim pieces to the neckline. 

Hope your inspired to create something beautiful.

Happy Sewing!
