Bear, Delaware, ...
This is actually the same pattern as my “Down by the Sea” top (Burda magazine’s #102 from the 6/09 issue)—this darker green fabric was my original “muslin” and I didn’t want it to go to waste! But I also didn’t want an identical shirt, so I made some modifications. Instead of the pleats, I used the front lining piece that I left out of the actual shirt (since it was cut out anyway) and extended the dart in a pintuck all the way up the piece so it looked like a princess seam. And then to fix my previous problem of no sleeve hem allowance and add some visual interest, I added the pleated trim. Actually, I think I just might like this version more than the original pattern!
