Stripey summer top a size larger

Nice top, but to narrow (it doesn't look to bad in the photo, but it was uncomfortably tight around my tummy).

The wrap was a real wrap, not a mock one, so I had enough fabric to work with.
I swapped the two front pieces.
I draped the new outer frontpiece in a way I thought looked nice.
I stitched it to the inner frontpiece about 5 cm (2") from the sideseam.
I added a piece of black elastic lace for a nice finish.
On my blog HERE you can see pictures of how I reworked this top

The finished top.

And action:
