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.
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.
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!
