I want to try and make a top kind of like this:
from sorbetto base.
I’m trying to play around with pattern drafting, so while I know there are a few patterns out there similar, I want to try it for myself.
My question is, do I just slash and spread? and if so is there a way to slash that doesn’t involve the pleat-slash going all the way to the bottom of the shirt? Volumous tops don’t suit me, but I do love the pleated necks that are everywhere!

Any good hints or resources?
