It doesn't get much better than this. I managed to squeeze this shirt out of 1 yard of fabric (the pattern calls for 1 1/2 yards), which was a whopping $2.95 at my local fabric shop. You can sew this in about an hour. Possibly with your eyes closed. The frills on the shoulders really make this top different. There's no way to make them "perfect". They change shape and position as you wear them, making this shirt artsy but not in a bad way.
The only thing that I'm not so crazy about is the shoulders, which I think are a little wide on me so that the straps often shift and show my br.a straps.
Oy vey. Now I see that I have quite the runner's tan -- look at the top of my white X!
And... for those of you following along at home: I got the dye stains out of my blue skirt with Oxyclean. Amazing stuff!
