Q&A with SewBusyLizzy

StephA asked:
I like that your top has a lot of drape at the neckline. What did you do to get that much? When I make mine, I want a lot of drape. Other projects using this pattern have a smaller drape.
SewBusyLizzy answered:
I'm not quite sure why the drape is so pronounced on this one. I suspect it may be behcause 1) the fabric is very lightweight, 2) the stripes exaggerate the drape's appearance and 3) I am very narrow shouldered and have a small ribcage so the drape doesn't get pulled outwards which would diminish the look of the drape.
