Oooh, a top!! Now I'm excited...

It occurs to me that I haven't done much sewing for myself since the '80s. I have a gorgeous collection of designer Vogues, but, Wow, look at those shoulders!! I think I even have a pattern for a Talking Heads suit!

I found a few candidates that may be doable:

Versace in the '80s was molto bene. The purple one has kimono sleeves with no shoulder pads and a nice little wrap.

Here's a little surplice t-shirt that I made once and loved. (The red one...) I think I would prefer 3/4 sleeves now, though.

Or there is this later model Folkwear vest.

Waddya think? Can I pull this off?
