I love this top from anthropologie. There are some additional pictures of the side and back on the anthropologie website. I looked at every pattern company I could think of and did not come up with a pattern for the neckline and collar. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to approach doing that collar/neckline? I had thought about cutting a shape into some fabric in the shape of the neckline of the pattern I used for the basic top and then shaping the edges of the fabric so that when it is sewn onto the neckline it will wrap around my shoulders correctly (that "shaping" is the part I am unsure about) Then I thought about just tying a bow and sewing it on. If anyone has a better way or happens to know of a pattern, I would be so appreciative.

Looks like you could just do a tank top type top and then do the big bow piece separate...pleats in the shoulder areas to square it off/hug your shoulders...and then attach the bow piece to the top maybe along the neckline.

Have you checked E-BAY? This just might be an OLD pattern being made to look NEW! Check it out.
