Ithaca, New York...
This is my first time sewing in piping — it was time consuming but I think that the effect was definitely worth it. I altered the pattern a little to make the bodice and the sleeves shorter. I also added in a little belt thing at the back to cinch it in at the waist just slightly. The collar is pretty wide and does show my bra if it moves around too much, but alas I don’t have the skills to fix this. I may just cheat and make some snap fasteners to hold the bra in place on the underside of the shirt. (I just realized after uploading this that the color on the photos is a little wonky — the print is black with white dots, not strange colored dots as it appears!)
