I love a deep neck line and since I only own one such shirt, I decided to make my own.
I used an old shirt as my bodice pattern and the Lydia pattern for the sleeves (love that they’re puffed a bit). I finished the neckline, as well as the hem at the sleeves and bottom, by turning the edge over twice and sewing it with a twin needle.
I’m still pondering whether I should put a ribbon bow in the front or back…what do you think? Until now it is only secured with a pin.
