Brooklyn, New Yo...
Well, I used some shirting scrap fabric for this, but I think both are rather heavy weight for this pattern, and I think I could have made it a size smaller. It kind of looks like half a mummu…. or a maternity dress.
I turned under the edges of the cap sleeves and did some decorative scalloped machine top stitching. I embellishing the front panel with a hand embroidered keyhole motif. I liked making the shirt a little bit special in that way. I think I would try selective embroidery again.
Blue Cotton Chambray, yellow cotton shirting – leftovers from other projects. Embroidery floss. Cotton thread.
