Tucker and Tate knock-off

The green top is from the brand Tucker and Tate. The blue floral is my knock-off version.
Both the blue floral and the red and white stripe on the one I made are from Joann's and the blue is like a voile. I copied the shirt by laying it down and tracing and adding seam allowance. The neck doesn't lay as flat as I'd like but I don't know how to fix that. I guess I shouldn't have dropped out of fashion design...
I already made another one out of Anna Maria Horner Voile and while the fabrics I used are GORGEOUS the fabric sewed up much different than this voile (that I'm not sure is a voile or a lawn or just a really thin cotton). The neck is wonky because the AMH voile is so soft and thin. I'll blog that soon.
I am really wanting to copy a bunch of the girls ready made clothes because I'm just not seeing many kids patterns out there that I want to make.  

I love the back.

very cute! i tend to make bias bindings a bit shorter than the pattern calls for, so i have to stretch them a little bit to make them match the neckline. tends to hug the body a bit better that way...?

Gorgeous!!! I love it. Yup try what Kristen said. It was my first thought. It's not detracting from the cuteness of the top though. Perfect fabrics!
