Orange Poppies Self Drafted Tank

As soon as I saw this gorgeous fabric I fell in love! Poppies have always been my favorite flower to draw, I used them quite a bit in my early printmaking.

This blouse has long french darts in the front and neck darts in the back that work into the center back seam. I went with a high low hem …
