|Tied up with a bow|
Here is what you will need:
- A top that is already pieced together
- Corresponding bias tape
- 1/4 inch elastic (optional)
So, assuming you have your top already pieced together, the first step is to determine how deep you want your neckline. Fold the front of the top in half lengthwise and cut out a scoop.
When your top is right side out, it should look like this:
Once that is done, there are a couple of ways you can finish this. You can either thread bias tape or ribbon through (using a safety pin) and tie it off with a pretty bow as I did here:
or you can thread elastic through and sew the ends in at the edge of the keyhole as I did here:
One thing that I love about this option is that you can change it later if you want to, simply by removing a few stitches.
