Woven Indigo Hack: Lindsay from PA Country Crafts

 Today we have Lindsay from PA Country Crafts joining us with an upcycle and a hack! 

I have been wanting to try the Indigo pattern in a woven instead of knit fabric. The deep V back looked like it would work ok and I love when woven patterns don’t require buttons or zippers. 

To make this work, I figured that I would need to size up a bit. I looked at the finished chest measurements and chose a size that would accommodate my daughter’s chest and waist measurements with a little extra wiggle room. I used the main bodice patterns for the lining as well- I don’t know if that makes a difference, but it was less pattern pieces to cut. 

I also under stitched the seam allowance around the neckline to keep it from flipping. It all went together very quickly and I would love to try it in a fabric with more drape than cotton poplin. You can get the details on how I used a men’s button down dress shirt to create this top on my blog.
