Green Floral Pillow Case- Day 2

Rachel ChurchComment

The plan for the pillow cases that I showed you yesterday is to make a 60's inspired top. Because the print is pretty powerful, I'm keeping  the shape relatively simple.  It will be a sleeveless top that has a gathered yoke under the bust.  As you can see in the photo below, I cut off the lower half of the shirt under the bust, gathered it, and reattached it.  I did this to allow for some extra room in the stomach and hip area so it won't be too tight. My plan for the back of the shirt is to give it some fun vintage buttons and a different neckline than what's in the front.  With design, I always like a little something unexpected. The button details should do the trick!
