I found another long sleeve shirt in Burda 02-2010 with a sweetheart neckline, completely different in every way from my first plan. And if I had read any reviews (and there are plenty because I am really late to the game on this), or made a muslin (which I didn't because I didn't want to pause in the case that I changed my mind yet again), I would have learned that the neckline is ridiculously wide and deep. It is so wide that it is almost an off shoulder top. It is so deep that even a plunge bra won't work with it. I am not a shy person when it comes to necklines or hemlines, but this is a little bit much for me. I added lingerie straps to keep things in place. Lee loves this shirt.
|Front. The lingerie straps pull the front up a little so that the bustline doesn't fall where it ought to. The alternative is to show the world my bra, which isn't really an alternative. So I'll take the bustline in the wrong place.|
I have been sewing a lot but haven't had time to take pictures. I don't know how everyone else manages to make so many posts! For me, it's a choice between sewing and putting together a post.
Next up is either a skirt or a remake of the red pants I'm wearing in the above photos. The pants will be turquoise this time around.
