One of my favorite blogs I have found through Project Run and Play is Frances Suzanne. It is written by two sisters who sew some of the most classically beautiful clothes for their nieces. It is these two ladies that have motivated me to use piping in various projects.
Well, for several months they have been hosting a "flip that pattern" fun filled contest/sewalong. I participated one month and decided to again.
March is the month of the Beach Boat neck. I already owned that pattern so I decided to make a button up shirt version.
I cut the front as two pieces instead of on the fold and gave it about another inch on the center. I also rounded off the corners next to the neck.
Then I used contrasting knit to make a binding for the hem and around the front to create a placket for the buttons. For the bottom binding, I used a decorative stitch to give it more interest and tack it down.
