having a diagonally overlapping neckline or closing.I don't know exactly why I'm attracted to this design, but I am; it just doesn't seem to work out for me fit wise. But....... every now and then I give it a try again. Aggggg! when I learn?, or am I just a glutton for punishment?
Last year it was this pattern. Not in love with the top I made but I do wear it because I love the fabric.
This week I decided to try a different version of another pattern I used last spring
Last year I made 2 of view F. This time I opted for view C. About this pattern, first of all I DID NOT understand the part of the instructions on how to construct the ruched side of the top. Just made up my own way to get the top finished. I also forgot that the racer arm shape is really severe. I did use Myra's directions to raise the neckline 1 1/2" to keep the front from being far too low cut. That worked out fine, but I'm still not 100% satisfied with the surplice design. Guess it's just not for me. I will wear this top as well, because again I'm in love with the colors and print of the fabric.
