When I first took patternmaking classes (several years ago now) I was so impressed with our lesson on flat patterning a cowl neck, that I went straight home and drafted this top. Being a beginner I just used a blouse block that I extended straight down from the natural waistline, rather than a shortened torso block. That's why this shirt has an odd inverted triangle shape and probably why I've only worn it once before today. I wish I could say I no longer make stupid pattern mistakes like this anymore, sadly this doesn't seem to be the case. Hands in pockets is clearly not the most advantageous way to show off these McQ for Target pants wouldn't you say?.
