I pretty much always sew with knits as they are just so soft and wearable. However, when I saw the Shoreline Boatneck top by Blank Slate Patterns could be made with a woven, my interest peaked. The silhouette is very similar to a couple of my favorite work tops that are sadly getting worn out (or rather just over worn) so I thought it would be great to add another top into my work wardrobe rotation.

Seriously, this fabric is like butta and has an amazing drape. I think it might be a rayon since the hand is a lot like the fabric I used in my Sailor Top. I originally bought 3 yards of this fabric so I could make a maxi dress, but I started second guessing myself thinking that this print might get a bit overwhelming in a maxi. What do you think? I still have 2ish yards left and no clue what to use it on.

I cut a size small and the fit is spot on. I also tried to pay extra attention the print when I cut my pattern pieces to avoid some sort of unfortunate fabric print placement that can sometimes happen with busy, circular-ish prints and I’m pretty pleased with the results.

I will definitely be making this pattern again. How cute would it be with a peter pan collar or a back keyhole?!
