Then, I spied this pretty little shirt on Anthropologie. I adored the cute peek-a-boo of lace and had just finished a top using lace with some leftover, waiting to be put to use.
Isn't it just darling? I thought about it for a day and had a few ideas.
I didn't want to make a shirt because it's not my style at the moment and I've had no experience sewing a shirt yet. But I had just made my third Scoop Top and knew it was going to fit.
I created a back yoke and a centre back seam in the lower back piece so I could accommodate the lace. I gathered the lace and eye-balled it when it came to sewing it in. So it's a bit off centre but that's ok. I omitted the tab to make life easier.
I'm not sure how much of the lace will peek-a-boo in this version when it is worn by a real person but hopefully it's fun enough to wear over the summer and be breastfeeding friendly too.
