Last but certainly not least in the Summer Party series is the ruffle front mock turtleneck. Of all the designs in this trio, this is the one I most regret not taking a photo of before I sent it away. As good as it looks on the model here, it looked even better on me! This top broadens narrow shoulders and enhances flat chests, though the ruffle is not so dimensional as to be overpowering on fuller figures.
I am especially delighted with the collar. It took me several tries to find a way to use Flora and not have it sag, while keeping it stretchy enough to fit over someone's head. This version looks great and stretches to 26"!
I would like to make this for myself in a longer length with sleeves, maybe using Oak (instead of cotton) in color Sky and Flora in color Stormy. Although the blue is really pretty, too. . . .
