New Look 6870, View B
black textured lawn
I followed the pattern exactly until I came to the neckline. Since I was to teach a shirring class for my local SAGA group, I used that technique on this top. The neckline fabric edge was serged with a rolled hem and then I added 3 rows of elastic shirring. There are many great tutorials on shirring on the internet, so just Google search "elastic shirring." I prefer to use my coverstitch machine to do elastic shirring. A serger with coverstitch options will work also. This eliminates winding bobbins and goes very quickly.
I love this top in the Houston heat!
