Not really the same

This is the shirt that confused David, who couldn’t tell it apart from the one I posted Saturday. Even in an otherwise identical outfit, I think they’re pretty different. But maybe that’s just me.

This one is a variation on simple rectangular shirt, this time with a 3″ difference between the front and back.

    I love this shirt! I’ve been looking for some nice stripey knit. Where do you get yours?

    I love this striped shirt. I don’t know what you mean about the 3″ difference between the front and the back. You look adorable in the clothes you make! Thanks for sharing.

      This shirt is made by sewing together two rectangles of slightly different sizes (I describe how to do this in a bit more detail here). The extra fabric on the larger piece drapes down and forms the neckline. A larger difference, like the 8 inches I used in my first shirt in this style, forms a cowl neck. But here the front neckline is only 3″ longer than the back, which makes the somewhat higher neckline you see here.
