Description

I made this shirt for my cousin’s White Party Celebration for her 50th birthday. Although, the emphasis is all white, I wanted something with a little more spunk. Coincidently, I came across this beautiful jersey fabric and print with a white background, grey stripes (of different gradiations) and thin silver metallic threads. As much as jersey material is difficult to work with, I love to wear it and decided to use it regardless.

I definitely wanted a casual shirt that I could dress up.

Details include: white contrasting band (around the neck), snap buttons at chest, hidden arm straps (to adjust the sleeve length) and silver buttons.

I also altered the white pants I am wearing by taking in the seat of the pants and making the leg more skinny.

      Jersey fabric or knit fabric is a stretchy fabric predominately used to make t-shirts like “Hanes” or “Fruit of the Loom” or other pull over t-shirts, dresses and the like.

      No the snaps were not difficult to use at all. I would have sewed them on differently though in such a way that you couldn’t see the thread on the outside when the snaps are connected. And casual elegance is definitely the look I was going for. You said it right. Thank you for the compliment.
