As I am using the pattern from Top-001B to make Top-001C there is not really much of a plan of action required. Read the Plan of Action for Top 001-B.
How many pattern pieces?
Most of this information is the same as for Top-001B; the only difference between these two tops is that this one has two darts in the waist (for the half block) instead of one in the side seam and one in the waist.
This top has only three pattern pieces; the Bodice Front, Bodice Back, and the interfacing for the Button Placket. The button placket itself is an extension of the Bodice Front. No pattern piece is created for the bias tape; create lengths of bias and cut it to match the length of the armholes and neckline. (i.e. It is very fiddly to create a pattern piece from paper and pin it to the fabric (especially with soft drapy fabrics); it is easier to draw lines on the fabric with a chalk, cut those pieces out, then sew them together and/or cut them to the length required).
- Bodice Front
