I'm pretty sure the entire female population went crazy
when Anthropologie introduced the Volante shirt (myself included).
I mean, who wouldn't swoon over something so chic and feminine, huh?
Bows on the shoulder? Eeepp!
That'll make any girl feel fierce.
I'd already decided to purchase the Volante, when I found this
light-weight sweater I'd bought on clearance from the LOFT
perishing in the darkness of my sweater bin under the bed
As you know if you follow this blog at all,
I sorta have this personality flaw that causes me
to look at clothing in the store and think,
Well, shoot...I can pull that off!
Armed with a bit of know-how and half a yard of gray lining
I came up with a pretty close version of the Volante. Yay!!!
I chose these sizes for no good reason...it was pretty much all guess-work
(but I did write them down, so I could share them with you).
If I did this again, I'd use these same sizes.
At this point, you'll also want to press the pieces.
