These are a also called peek-a-boo shoulder tops...or whatever other name you know to call them works too. This shirt is very basic, but has the nice option of being somewhat like a tank top too.
Excuse the somewhat blurry picture, the mosquitoes right now are insane. Its absolutely impossible to stand still for three seconds without getting bit! Anyway, so this is roughly how you can make one.
Trace a shirt you have, use a pattern, or just measure like I do, and cut out a basic shirt shape. This doesn't have a set in sleeve, but you do need to include a sleeve shape in your cut out. I made mine a boatneck. I made the sleeves to be fitted, and I tapered the sides of the shirt in a bit.
Now, at the top of your sleeve, cut out a curve. I made mine about an inch deep, and left about a two inch strap at the shoulder.
I sewed it together just like a normal shirt. Don't forget to sew the sleeve ends together.I hemmed all the openings, and added a little bow at the sleeve connecting point just for pretties.
This was my practice go around, but there will be a black version available for purchase in my Etsy shop. I used a polyester interlock, and I really liked the structure it had even though it was stretchy.
I have got a bunch of new things lined up to add to the shop, and tutorials to follow, of course. Right here lately, it's a matter of choosing between making something, or doing the write up on it. Since, photography is my nemesis, I've been choosing the making. Hopefully, I'll get myself caught back up here soon.
