squares square top

  • thrifted sheet from salvation army, $1.49
  • 20" wide by 26" long, plus seam allowances (french seams)
  • slightly curved hem at the side seams; if i thought ahead i might have made this longer and made more of shirttail hem
  • offset the vertical strip, and matched it to the back (the horizontal stripes are not matched to the back)
  • made a muslin first (glad i did)
  • the curve of the neckline took a couple tries; i'm happy with how it came out, but the fabric does pucker a bit.  maybe should have made a neckline binding, like the wiksten tank
  • underarm seams were a little tricky since there is no actual sleeve
super happy with this one, love it
