I was on the fence about posting this one. I feel like it’s a bit boring. But I’ve had this fabric in the stash for awhile and have just put off making it since, well, its not too exciting. The challenge this week was buttonholes and this shirt had plenty. Though I don’t really mind buttonholes, maybe since my machine makes really nice ones. All I have to do is push the pedal!
I really do quite like the result on this shirt though. I’ve been wanting a lazy day shirt, something that looks nicer than a t-shirt but is just as easy to wear.
I honestly made no alterations to this pattern except to take in the sleeves a little bit since they were freakishly large and I made the petite adjustments. Overall I think the fit’s pretty good, it buttons without gaping so that’s always a plus. It’s one of the patterns that has the A,B,C and D cup options which I think they should offer on all patterns!
My little girl wanted to be in on the action!
I apologize for the quality of my pictures, lol! Neither me or my husband are photographers but I at least tried to get outside this time. I’m in awe of all the beautiful picture takers on here. I’ll leave you with a few more shots of me trying to pose. :)
