Shirt #2

Here is the next shirt I made. I didn't take a "before" picture, but you can just imagine it

Before: a black, button down, collared shirt.

[Place said "imagined" picture here]

After:



Here is the back:



I liked this one because I didn't have to worry about sleeves at all. It made it go quickly. I just cut the shirt right under the armpits. Of course I was a naughty girl and thought I could do it without the instructions. So I tried it, stayed up late one night working on it, and then realized I should have read the instructions more carefully and had to backtrack a lot of what I did the next day. Why do I do that??? It's not just sewing though. I do that with cooking too, especially baking. You'd think I would learn my lesson, but nooooooo.



After many a frustration, I think it turned out pretty cute!
