I went through my box of patterns, looking for some that would help me with the basic pieces.
Here is how I laid out my pattern pieces on my fabric.
After cutting out the neck yoke piece, I decided not to use it at all. I was going to just cut a V in it for the neckline I planned, but it just wasn’t getting the look I wanted. So instead I cut out two angled strips and added them to the yoke-less, squared neckline, after gathering it a little bit.
Thanks, Christie for taking the pictures. And thanks strangers with cute house for letting me pose in front of it.
