I hunted and hunted. Scoured my extensive stash, yet could find no satin. Nothing with a slightly heavy body other than linen and denim. Nah... not really my thing for a high backed neck top. You see, I have an average, but shorter neck. I like freedom of movement and no fabric getting in my way at the back of my neck. Then, I remembered trying to pattern match some seahorse print fabric by Tula Pink. It was a B*tch to match in garments. Was I ready to pattern match again? Why not, I'd already let it sit half cut for a couple years. It couldn't waste it nor ruin it more.
Oh, I should mention, this is 4 pieces with 3 seams in the photo below.
- lower the neckline in the front a little
- taper the bias strip
- or lower that bias/front/back side junction in order to allow for the full height of the bias strip.
What do you think of it? Would you have done something different with the bias junction?
