I made another Kwik Sew 2874 raglan top this year using pieces I found at SAS Fabrics. I really wanted to make a lace overlay shirt, but this was the only piece of soft lace I found after searching. When I got it home, it languished because it resembles a tablecloth.
I tried it with a dark underlay and it looked too harsh. I tried it with a light underlay and the pattern was too subtle. Then I saw this Anthropologie top and realized that a stripe underlay would create an interesting moire effect.
