You may remember this pattern from my Andrew Wyeth shirt. This time around I did a shorter length and a shorter sleeve. Reusing the pattern meant it was free, the pattern pieces were already cut out, I had already made necessary adjustments, and I didn’t have to think as hard about individual steps.
The fabric is something my mother picked up at least 6 years ago at a garage sale. I took the photos in my new favorite spot in the house: the empty space left by the removal of an enormous 1911 Grinnell Bros. piano that has gone to a home where it will actually be played. This spot will not be empty for long. We have plans for new living room furniture. Can’t wait to give this room a face lift.
