This past week I made two things for myself, shocking I know. Between things for the shop, things for the naughties and just other things I rarely get to the things for myself. And what’s better is that I LOVE both things. Today I’ll share one of things, this shirt. I love it. It was super easy. And seriously I need to practice smiling or posing, hi crocked smile, this was the best out of the handful of pictures we took.
I used McCall’s pattern 5977. And even though I sew a lot I think this is a really manageable pattern for most sewing folk. I must warn you though that I don’t really follow most patterns. For this one I did not even bother to read the directions because it made sense to me how it would go together from the pieces, so I can’t say if they are particularly clear. I did need to add some width to the bottom hem for my
big butt hips and silly me skipped the stay stitching step so the neck stretched out a bit when I added the binding. But I’m super happy with it. I’ve already got another shirt out of the same base cut out.
Anyways, I just wanted to share, and if you sew and like it you might want to give it a try. I’ll share my second goodie for myself later this week (I want to make a tutorial for that one).
