I’ve been puzzling out a shirt of this style in my mind for a while. It’s almost what I want. And not too bad for a first try with repurposed (the red) material. I used Ichigogirl’s Anna Top for the base and tried out an all in one sleeve yoke idea that I’ve been trying to figure out for the top part. I think it works. I only made two changes to the pattern. I cut off the seam allowance for the bust section since the measurement is larger than my bust. And I cut straight across the top after the cups were attached.
micropoly (purple), cotton modal blend (red)
