summer shirt

Well, I’ve been at it again.  I remember drooling over these shirts from katie did when I first started reading blogs.  If you’ve never been to her site, you should drop in (even though she’s currently not blogging).

So it was time that I tried it out myself.  Of course it’s pretty easy to jump in when you’re making a small top and using $2/yard fabric.

I’m pretty happy with the fit, it’s pretty snug, but I’m going to try out another round with some adjustments and see how it goes.

I’ll have to put it on hold until later because Friday I’m guest posting on Grosgrain for her fabulous free pattern month, so excited and honored to join in!

    Good job-you even matched your plaids at the seams-something most people are unaware of! Looks good~

    Very cute! I love bargain fabric. 🙂 It’s nice to see bloggers making garments out of “regular” fabric sometimes! The designer fabric is adorable but out of my price range a lot of times.

    Super, super cute! You did a great job! I sure do miss Katie Did’s blog…it was so inspirational.

    oh, that’s perfect for summer! I love the little pleat in the front. I’ve been looking for woven shirt ideas for the girls, and this fits the bill. That Katie Did, she was/is pretty awesome, huh? I love how I’m still getting ideas from her even though she hasn’t blogged for something like 2 years.

    darling!!! i think it would be an adorable tunic dress, too. just add a bit of length and continue the lines so that it has a bit of an A-line. so many possibilities!
