NewLook 6705

So here is the project I worked on last week. I actually made a dress as well but am working on the hem so you'll have to wait to see it. I really like the way this shirt came out. It is made of a black cotton eyelet (I'm wearing a camisole underneath for modesty). Instead of using typical interfacing for the neck band, I used plain black cotton fabric as interfacing. So there is actually three layers of fabric in the neckband. This was an easy, breezy project- check out my full review on PR to the left.

My top is reminiscent of this $100 RTW:

I'm still working on the muslin for Vogue 1086. It is not a difficult garment to construct. However there are lots of pieces and lots of steps. Stay tuned...
