I've been playing with my sewing machine again! I fell madly in love with some bizarre purple and green floral cotton lawn (or voile, or whatever -it's soft, thin, and almost sheer) a few weeks ago. Florals are trendy this year, and the garish lime green pleases me so much, so I was entirely justified in attempting to make a shirt, right?
I used a pattern from BurdaStyle; the printed tunic/clean cut dress.
I modified the neckline and sleeve length, and shortened the overall length. I also made it more fitted and shaped in the waist, added darts for fit, and fiddled about with the sizing. There are a few irritating fit issues in the back neck and shoulder, but I'll deal. I'm still learning, after all.
Pardon the wrinkles - I'd had it on for an afternoon of shopping and car rides by this point. I'd love to style it with a wide belt, but I don't have one. I would have one if I didn't keep blowing my entire clothing budget on more fabric. So many pretty things in the works!
I'll share my next attempt soon!
