Simple loose-fitting top with cut-on sleeves and self-bias trim. Button enclosure at back neck. The shirt ended up too loose-fitting, and the neckline gaped, so I gathered the neckline a bit in the front and back.
I do a lot of sewing (quilting and other things), but this is the first piece of clothing I’ve made for myself.
Printed calico-I love this fabric!
I used the Bonfit bodice patterner to draft the pattern. The pattern turned out way too loose, in my opinion.
