Nicola was not at all on my summer sewing plans. In fact I didn't own the pattern until a few weeks ago. Mikey went into Bernina with me one day and spotted the pattern. It worked out well because I didn't know how I was going to use that tiny bit of silk. (Yea! Another crop top!) Plus, I think it's well thought out for Victory to mirror the look of the tulip skirt at the sleeves. Neither is the most relaxed way for me to dress, but they're cute!
