Anthropologie Plaid Shirt Hack

p1040435

This is the Liola Patterns Natalie Top.  I did some pattern hacking to make it look like this top from Velvet by Graham and Spencer at Anthropologie.

Changes made

  • Added a yoke at front shoulder, rotated the darts to gathers there.
  • Shortened the sleeves to 3/4 length, added an elastic casing
  • Drafted in a curved shirttail hem

Overall I’m quite pleased, I think I recreated the original shirt well, it fits and I feel cute in it! A sewing win.
