For those of you keeping track, this is my last float in my FO parade! I liked the dove shirt I made so much that I decided to make another one (but not with doves).
The second go-round of this shirt was super simple. I managed to lose temporarily misplace the directions, but I had no problem putting the pieces together after doing it the first time. I wanted to make the sleeves a little shorter, and that was fortunate because these were as long as I could get with two yards of fabric!
This is the second time I've used this fabric design (in different colors) to sew a garment, (This dress being the first) and I'm so impressed with how nicely both garments came out. I think the modern print and the slimming vertical lines are a winning combination.
I think the modern print is really great in this pattern, as well. The dove fabric in the first shirt was sweet, but I think this is a really winning fabric + pattern combination. And it's fun to have a pretty necklace peeping out from this collar.
A little girl in my glass asked me today if I sewed this shirt, and it makes me really happy that she noticed! I try to share my enthusiasm for knitting and sewing with the children in my classroom, and I love when when they show they're paying attention.
