This week is a two for one.  Yes, that’s right, I made two shirts from this pattern.  One of the shirts was 100% from remnants that I picked up from Joann.

The pattern itself was ok.  The instructions are a bit confusing because the there are so many views and they have similar instructions with deviations.  I think they were trying to keep it concise but keeping your place and making sure you were reading instructions for your view was tricky.  I spent a lot of time making sure I was reading the right instruction.  Also, where they wanted you to sew the front slit was ridiculously low.  I had to sew it 2 to 3 inches higher than it called for and as you can it’s plenty low where I sewed it.


View D, Size 14, I added one inch in length

This is the top I made from the scraps I picked up in the rem bin.  I couldn’t add the extra inch of length in due to how little fabric I had to work with.

View D, Size 14, Original Length


Can you imagine this 2 to 3 inches deeper?!?!?  I think it’s plenty low as is.

I would definitely make this pattern again.  I like the style and the different variations.  I think this cut is flattering on me and comfortable.

That’s it!  So what do you think?  Like the keyhole neckline?

Next week I’ll reveal my first attempt at shorts!

I'm a mom to five, a wife to one and love sewing. I learned when I was a little girl but returned to it in full force in the last couple of years. The process of creating things keeps me sane. I set a lofty goal for myself, one project a week for a year. I'm four months in and it's awesome. I'm amazed at how much I've learned and improved. Set a goal to learn something new and devote weekly time to it. You will be amazed at the results.


  1. These jewel tones look amazing on you! You made an excellent executive decision about the center line being right where it needed to be on YOU!!! The top stitching is perfect! Over all these are top notch, hit out of the park, win win tops! You wear them well! 🙂
