It finally feels like summer! It's super hot, Ansley loves her wagon, it's light until almost 10 and we're spending less time indoors.
(anyone interested in a potato salad recipe?)
I sewed a non knit shirt for myself and it actually fits. I used the Colette Sorbetto Pattern with the Sleeve by Mena from Sew Weekly. I used an awesome Lisette voile that I got on super clearance for my practice shirt and it's wearable. I added an extra inch to the bottom but wish I had more length. I used bias tape to finish the bottom b/c I didn't want to lose any of the length. Sometimes I think the neckline is a little bit saggy. Maybe I should've stretched the bias tape more? Oh and there's a picture of the burn from making cinnamon rolls. . . . I actually wore it with the red skirt but changed to the green one for a walk in the park.
I'm doing a sew along hosted by Sunni at A Fashionable Stitch. (I just tried to insert the button and only got the image. Pretend it's here).
Here's my muslin. Yes, I sewed the right side on backwards. Oops. I'm not sure this style works for me- the fit in the top, shoulders, and bust is alright, the waist is too small unless I'm standing up and sucking my belly in, and the back is Pirates of the Caribbean billowy. I'm toying with using a pattern for a button down shirt and just adding a skirt. I've been wanting a shirt dress since seeing this one from Shabby Apple and I got the perfect fabric on super clearance; it's just like this one except black and white. Thoughts?
