E-book Empirchen Top

Wow, it took me long enough to get in the mood again.  I think I have two problems.  First, I have so many things that I want to get accomplished, and Second, I just cannot get started.  In both cases, I feel overwhelmed.  If I don't have enough time to sew, then I would prefer to just sit on my you-know-what and just not even start.  Wrong!  I need to work in small time alotments, and watch the creation emerge.

Pattern: E-Book Empirchen Top.  Two variations, one for cottons or wovens, and one for knits.
I ordered it from Germany (Farbenmix).

Size: 74/80

Fabric: 100% cotton.

What I liked about this pattern:
Everything.  I love the E-books because the pattern just has to be printed and taped together.  I wish all the companies would jump on this banwagon.  Very easy to follow.  Sizing was great.

What did you dislike about this pattern:
I did not like the way the pattern was put together.  Not quite clean enough for me.  I decided to use my own techniques once I read through the instructions.  I doubled the front and back.  It gives the garment more stability, and both the inside and the outside look cleaner.  

I added three buttons to the front, however I think a large crochet flower would look nicer. 
A You-Tube Video shows exactly how to crochet the flower for the front of the dress.
