I initially made the version with sleeves.
|Sorry for the terrible quality picture|
I took the odd heart fabric and used the wrong side, rotated by 90 degrees, for the yoke. It looks much cooler in person - I promise :)
Then I took the sleeves off:
Aaand I like it a lot more. There seems to be less pulling from the chest (I should have done an FBA) and I still love the yoke even when it's chopped off before the epaulette part.
This photo probably shows the fabric in most detail (it tends to mess with the camera a bit...)
There are lots of lovely tester versions out there also - many people used solid ponte type knit fabrics and colour blocked the yoke, which looks great! The versions that Lisa from Paprika Patterns has made (here) are also all stupidly lovely.
It's a great summer top - casual, but with some interest from the yoke. I could see myself making the dress version if I still lived in Tassie or the UK for winter too.
Ciao for now...
