I made this using the sloper pattern from this page. I lenghtened the pattern and left the darts open at the bottom back. I used beige lace for the edges and made the shirt with buttons at the front so I woudn’t need a zipper. Although not intentional the top reminds me very much of Austrian Dirndl-wear (like the ladies who serve beer in the mountains ;) I like it!
(I also had to tuck in the neckline with two darts on each side because it was very wide – I’m not entirely happy with this solution and also don’t know why it turned out that wide to begin with – any suggestions on how to change the neckline without using these darts??)
