If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that one of my favorite blouse designs is the Mama Catherine from Made for Mermaids. I love the ruching under the yoke and the loose style is comfortable and flattering on my body. I have literally made over 20 of these shirts for myself and my family!

I don’t have a lot of green in my wardrobe, so I thought it would be nice to make a St. Patrick’s Day shirt this year. I chose a nice olive green double brushed poly from

La Mama Catherine takes 2 to 2.5 meters of knitted fabric, depending on the sleeves you choose. I usually use double brushed poly for this top – cotton lycra is a little too stiff for my liking. I had some fabric left over from cutting out my olive green blouse, so I decided to do something a little different this time. I hacked the yoke with a fabric weave detail, and I love it! This gives the shirt a dressy and unique feel.

Adding the weave detail was easier than it looks…

I started by cutting 4 inch wide strips of fabric. I folded them in half (right sides together) and sewed along the long edge. When I was finished, I turned the tubes right side out. Madame Sew has a super helpful tube turner set you can use for this step.

After I had a bunch of strips, I sprayed basting adhesive on the right side of my top yoke piece. Then I carefully placed the strips on top and started weaving them. I used a ruler to hold them all at a 45 degree angle.

After getting the basket weave to look the way I wanted, I carefully basted the strips in place using the longest stitch on my sewing machine. The basting spray kept everything in place. The basting spray washes off, but it takes a few washes.

I then turned the yoke piece over and cut off any strips that were hanging over the edge. Then I was ready to sew the shirt as usual.
