A couple of things have influenced my decision. One, the eyelet top pattern called for way more yarn than I actually used, so I have 4 and half skeins of yarn left over. (I hate when a pattern calls for so much more yarn than you actually use - I mean, what's up with that?). If I take apart the top and use the leftover yarn, I can knit up a full sweater with longer sleeves.
Two, the worsted weight yarn I used is very soft and comfortable, but still rather heavy for a sleeveless top. It is unlikely that I could wear a heavy top in warmer weather, so a longer sleeved top for spring/fall might be a better use of this yarn.

So, that's the plan. Maybe. And unfortunately, my digital camera died just after I finished taking the photos of the eyelet top, so it might be a while until I can post any photos of this project. If I decide to frog the eyelet top. Which I think I will (probably) do. Maybe.
