First, I cut off the collar and made the opening in the back. I made sure it would not dip down too low - I want to be able to wear a bra with this top!
I decided to keep it simple and use regular double-fold extra-wide bias tape for the edges. I bound the edge of the keyhole first, then pinned bias tape around the neckline, with long ends on each side for tying the bow on the back.
After I finished the neckline, I took in the sides a little to give the shirt a more feminine shape. Finally, I shortened the sleeves and bound the edges with the bias tape. Here’s the final look.
And the shirt from the back…
I love how it turned out! I can’t wait to wear it, as soon as the 6-10 inches of snow we just got here in Chicagoland goes away!
