Hey Friends! I'm over on the Cali Fabrics blog today with some Velvet Apparel inspiration, and thought I'd share how I hacked the Daytripper Dolman to have a V-shape neckline cutout.
Looks easy enough, right?? My one word of caution is to carefully consider which pattern you hack, and adjust the size/shape of your V accordingly. If your pattern is a super fitted one, expect the V to stretch out quite a bit. If your pattern is really loose, your cutout may be a shifty window ready to expose your bra or bosom with even the slightest move. Generally speaking - this is a "less is more" scenario. Start smaller than you think you'll want, baste the front piece together, and hold it against your body to determine any necessary adjustments.
Also - the wider your neck binding, the more emphasis you place on the "cutout." Narrower bindings, like the one seen here, give the illusion of a very daring neckline. All depends what look you're going for!
