I made Simplicity 8593 for a 3rd time :)

Who doesn’t love vintage clothes?  The construction is interesting and different.  The styles can be timeless.  I bought this pattern based on View D but had only made view A.  The view A takes only one yard so I’ve used some rem fabrics to sew it up.  I love collecting one yard projects.  It’s good to keep your eye on how to creatively and functionally use up scraps.

I finally decided to make up view D.


For fun here are the other two shirts I made from this pattern . . .

I did adjust the plunge of that shirt.  It was WAY lower.  Here is that blog post if you are interested in reading that. https://sewsanityblog.com/2018/02/25/week-21-girls-night-out-shirt/

I made view D as instructed but added two inches to the length of the ruffle.

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 did it and I'm doing it again! 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.
