The Floral Sheer Sleeve Top: Another Theirs/Mine Copy Cat Creation

I am quite please with how my blouse came out, even with the wonky neckline.  I thank you all for your suggestions on how to make a better knit neckline, and will be practicing these methods.  





I decided I didn't want my neckline as wide as the original.

Quick Overview:

I used McCalls 6886 for the body and sleeves.  Instead of contouring as the pattern piece is constructed I boxed it and took out the contour.  The neckline, cuffs, and waistband was made of Ponte Roma Knit.  In hindsight, I should have used a not so tightly woven knit.  

Happy Sewing!

  5. Okay Mel...you go ahead and work this "Their" "Mines" series...I love it! That's a REAL good copy. One thing is for sure, the original is not perfect either. I think it looks FAB-U-LOUS on you and is a testament to your creativity. Nice work!
