The Golden Poppy Tee allows you to play around with the lace placement on the sleeves or bottom helm for a unique character. Customize the Golden Poppy Tee to your taste for a stylish and fashionable top.

This design has waist/bust/shoulder shaping and features minimal ease. This top is designed bottom-up in two panels. The shoulders are then seamed and the sleeves are added. The sides are then seamed. See ‘Construction’ for more information.

  • Stitch counts are shown in at the end of rows where a change takes place.
  • Customizations can be easily made to change the fit of this garment. Each section (hips, waist, bust) is notated, additional increases or decreases can be made in each section for a more customized fit.
  • The sleeves are made independently and you can mix and match the sleeve size and the top size for a perfect fit.

CONSTRUCTION
The Golden Poppy Tee is constructed bottom up in two separate panels; front and back. Front and Back panels have shaping for the waist, bust and shoulders. The top/lace portion is created in a separate color, stitched directly onto the front and back panels. The shoulders are then seamed to create long panels (right and left sides). The long panels on either side are edged, in the main color, for easier construction. The sleeves are made separate, in the main color, and are then seamed at the center of the long panels. The entire garment is then folded in half, lining up the bottom edges of the hem and the sleeves and seamed to finish. You can leave optional splits on the sides if desired. The neck is then finished with simple stitches in the same color used on the body.

Optional lace details can be added to the bottom hem and the sleeve hem.
