Front and back both cut on the fold. Finish arm and neck with bias tape. Hem. Done! :)
I was in Target today with my daughter:
My "little" girl (She'll be 15 in September!)
And saw this shirt:
I loved the idea of a different fabric for the back! I am not a fan of the 'mullet' hem so I didn't do that. And since this pattern doesn't have a facing (and I'm not skilled enough yet to draft one) I didn't do the front vent.
The fabric was cut on the cross-grain. Hopefully there are no ill-effects from me doing so. The pattern was horizontal and I didn't want horizontal! :)
Cannot wait to wear this to work!!!! I was going through my closet and I have 2 polka-dot tops, a striped cardigan and 2 striped tees. Every other shirt I own is solid. Every. Single. One. So I am happy to add this pretty print.
Fabric: $4 (1/2 yd red rayon - $2.20 and ~ 2/3 yd of white broadcloth I had on hand - $1.80)
Thread: Already had
Bias tape: $1.20
