I don't often wear black, but I interpreted the theme to be bold. (I hope my interpretation makes sense!) Bold for me is glam which is why I went with this top. It is a huge wow factor because it is covered in sequins! It is a beautiful dark gray.
The original top was huge so I used one of my shirts to get the fit I wanted. I would rather it be shorter, but I didn't want to deal with sewing much on the sequins. Instead I just reused the original neckline and hems. I think the tunic length will be great even if that isn't what I planned!
