The top is slightly smaller than you and will hug you nicely when worn.
Not all bodies look alike - thankfully! So, the intended fit of a garment might not fit everyone equally well. Unlucky Knits patterns always include a "Customization Guide" with tips on how to adapt the garment to fit you perfectly.

The best alternative: Smooth, lightweight yarns such as tencel/viscose or bamboo would work nicely with this pattern. Make sure to make a gauge swatch first, to see if your gauge fits and whether your yarn stretches as intended, when washed and blocked.
Another alternative: You can use wool or merino wool for this project, although the look might turn out a bit different, as wool is heavier than silk. Make sure to make a gauge swatch first, to see if your gauge fits and whether your yarn acts as intended, when washed and blocked.
This pattern generally contains very few advanced techniques, it offers detailed explanations of the entire process, and is generally clear and easily legible to all.
The pattern does contain abbreviations to certain words (k = knit, p = purl etc.) with a guide explaining the meaning of every abbreviation.
