I made this for myself... then it turned out I had cut it too small!! Super mad at myself because it drapes exactly how I wanted it to and it was a little tricky cutting it on the bias. I also made my own bias tape so that i could properly finish the arm and neck holes. So. Cute. So. MAD! I made myself another one, but it's in a soft drapy blue knit, not this fantastic brown stripe. I thought I would show it off. I made a girlfriend model for me.

The top looks great!  Too bad about it being too small. I cannot tell you how many times I have done that sort of thing myself (usually a symptom of trying to sew when I am tired  Roll Eyes ) Still it looks great and between the draping and the bias tape making you should be quite proud.

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

I love this shirt. It is a great cut and is very flattering on so many different types of bodies.

Looks great. Smiley

Love the drape. Too bad about it being small, it happens to all of us unfortunately.

On a side note I love the dobie pictures in the background.
