Description

I cannot find the “before” picture of the dress that I used to make these two tops. It had a massive collar and a tie under the collar. I guess it was meant for those times when you can’t decide which neckline you like best.

The dress had a drop-waist pleated skirt that was floor-length, and I made a Deer and Doe Bruyere shirt solely from the skirt portion of the dress. I made another shirt with the bodice, which is shown in the last two pictures of this post.

I did the best I could with the plaid matching given the limited amount of material, and honestly, I was very surprised with the results.
