Shrug Top

When asked to make a piece similar to something seen in a magazine or on the runway, I welcome the challenge. I think it is fun to study a garment, how it is made, and draft a pattern to recreate the article myself. Take this top from the Speigel catalog. It is called the Mock Shrug Tee. Made of a cotton/jersey fabric, this top is constructed like a t-shirt with an attached shrug. How fun! Add a skinny belt and slacks for work, or wear with jeans for a night out with the girls. Here is the Speigel top and my recreation.
