In the Queue Wednesday

This is one of my favorite casual (RTW) tops:

I think that the neckline (boat neck?) - possibly combined with the textured vertical lines - is flattering on me.

As you can see, it's getting a bit worn:

So, another project in my queue is to copy this garment. Given its age and shape, I think I'm going to just cut it up to copy it.

It should be easy - only 3 pieces (front, back & shirt sleeve) and a neck binding. The trick will be making sure that the material that I use has the same weight and drape and "hand"...

Man, it seems like it's been forever since I've been able to spend any time in my sewing room. :(

So I don't know when I'm going to be able to get to it. But, don't worry, I'll copy this top! It's in the queue... :)
