|Obviously, I veered from the inspiration.|
I had ordered the striped knit (a cotton jersey blend) from Girl Charlee without knowing what I was going to do with it, and when I was dually inspired by the Anthro shirt and the Scoop Top pattern, I went digging in my upcycling pile to see what I had that coordinated with the stripes. And lo and behold. This gem.

|Proof. And yes, I did make that hemp necklace I'm wearing.|

Maybe easier to see what I'm talking about here?
|I also like the striped binding contrasting the floral in the back.|

I also have to say, I love the pocket for drawing attention to the mixed fabrics. I don't usually love pocket tees, but in this case it's totally worth it! And ALSO also, when I cut out the pattern, I thought this shirt was going to be waaay long, but it's totally not. It's just perfect. Go Scoop Top!
