Hello everyone!
I recently bought this shirt from Free People, and I wanted to try to recreate the back of this shirt on another top. Any ideas on how to sew this?
Here is a picture of the back detail.

Thanks for your help!

    1 – Take the back of your t-shirt pattern and draw the inverted triangle 2 – Cut triangle out, add seam allowance to both pieces along the new seam you just cut 3 – Add seam allowance to the neckline of the tee if not already on pattern 4 – Draw sunburst shapes like in the picture on the inverted triangle piece being sure to preseve the seam allowance for the neckline. Make sure to mark the pieces you will keep and number then IN ORDER from left to right, or whichever way you remember 4 – Cut out these pieces and discard what will become the negative space/skin bearing area 5 – You should have an inverted triangle shape with negative space in the middle, some lines, and seam allowance for attaches the bottom of the t-shirt back and the neckline 6 – sew as regular

    Or you could:

    Draw a V, add 1 cm seam allowance.

    Keep 2cm of the neckline, add 1cm seam allowance.

    Then cut strips of 7cm wide fabric, fold in half and sew a 1 cm seam allowance, then pull it through to the other side.

    Then stitch the strips at intervals of 1cm all the way around the neck starting from the centre back.

    Put on all the pieces, pin all the end of the strips to the V so it sits flat. Then stitch them on! Voila
