My wardrobe has been under analysis since my last post, and i have realised that whilst I’m OK on the skirt / trouser front (apart from my jeans dying the day after I made my pledge!) there is a real void as far as tops go.
I’m planning a couple of Pendrells and Senchas (if the muslin turns out OK) but I’d like some variation! So I was mooching around on Burda and came across DaughterFish’s New York Shirt.
Isn’t the neckline just amazing? If you read her blog post about it she’s adapted it from this pattern.
Which is now all mine, courtesy of Etsy! The draped effect around the neckline is from darts or tucks. The pattern its self isn’t all that inspiring initially, but seeing what DaughterFish has done has helped me to see past the pattern cover. It’ll need a little frankenstein-ing, but if I can get a shirt as good as the inspriation, I’ll be one very happy bunny!
