Allison at E&M Patterns during the process. It is funny how you think that something is 'so, not doable' until you can see and read exactly how it all works. I must have tried to bind this adorable key-hole on the back neck piece about 5 times. Then I discovered the joy of stay-tape, yahoo!
I ended up making two of these shirts using different types of fabric for each. I started off with a great neon-pink polka-dot feather-weight jersey that screamed pre-teen and 80's flashbacks. But when I started to make my shirt I realized it also screamed 'see-through'....whoops. So I jumped in my car and ran over to Walmart and picked up an XL neon pink tee-shirt from the crafting section for $2.50. Then I came home and cut that bad-boy into pieces, pattern pieces that is. I still wanted to use the neon pink polka-dots so I used it as an over-lay on the front of the shirt and alone for the flutter sleeves.
