How could I not be inspired by that? Especially her lovely pleated neckline version??
Mine, of course, is a little more sheer than hers and does not have sleeves... which means the wind goes through it like butter.
I picked this fabric because it was lonely and I had no previous ideas for it. It's a polyester silk blend, so it was a little strange until I ironed it - then it began to flow beautifully. I had just enough for the body of the shirt (sans pleat down the front) and the pleated neckline.
It was a little difficult to do rolled hems with the fabric, so.... the top of the shoulders are a little weird.
But who cares about sleeves when you can throw on a jacket? This is what I wore last night, but since I was caught in a downpour, I had to wait for it to dry for these pictures.
I love this top. While the arm holes are a little funky, I am still a big fan of the pleated neckline. It just looks sooooo pretty. That Mena Trott - she's so smart :)
Have a great Sunday, all!!
