This is my second attempt at making a shirt for myself...the first was a miserable fAil!  This on I am much happier with!  I love how flowy it is...and I love the fabric!  A nice stretchy lace is perfect for this style.  I actually made this top to enter it into the Made by Rae spring top sewalong (which I've been watching for 2 years and not actually entered yet)...so I would LOVE your thoughts!  I think I'd like to make myself another of these in a different color, hmm...

I used a tutorial I found online to make this.  It's from Sew Convert and you can find the link here.

Here we go...



See how flowy it is?  That's my favorite feature...and how you can still make the bodice fitted.







Since this is my first, c&c welcome Smiley Is this a fail or a success?
I blogged about it here

well, the failing or succeeding of a garment is really up to the one who wears it - if it's a usable item that you're happy with, then it's a success. i do like this one, though Smiley
