McCalls M6751

 I saw this pattern and thought my daughter might like this made up for her.    I used a light weight silk like poly  I have had in my stash for so long I don't remember where it came from.

I made view B,  which was simple and quick  to make. I happened to have matching bias tape so I used it to finish the straps and key hole opening.  Even though I don't usually like bias tape bindings this worked out perfectly and kept the bias edges from stretching out of shape.  I would show you this detail but I am unable to find her shirt (must be in the laundry or the bottom of the closet).  One thing to notice is that the straps on my version are much larger making the keyhole opening smaller.  It probably has something to do with my lack of trimming but I am happy with how this looks on Lisa.

She really likes the shirt so we are both happy.

Fabric  detail but the color is more royal blue like the pictures below
