Chevron Shirt

Added Mar 23, 2008

by emilywirt

Athens, Georgia,...






This is a shirt I made from a Built by Wendy pattern, and it’s the second thing I ever made. I got the size kind of wrong, so I can’t move my arms very well in this shirt. Also, I’m not too crazy about the fabric I picked for this shirt. Therefore, I don’t ever really wear this shirt, but it was good practice for making a shirt.

Material Notes






Simplicity Pattern 3835

    I think this is super cute one you… and I LOVE the fabric. I have a similar fabric arriving soon and I can’t wait to use it. Nice work =)

    I had a similar problem with the arms, too, when I made that shirt pattern so maybe it’s not just you. I really like the fabric and the design looks good on you. :)

      Thanks! Yeah I love this fabric. It think it’s just not stretchy enough for this type of shirt, but I’m glad I’m not the only one who had this problem.

    personally I love the fabric, perfect for summer. Too bad about the sizing though.

    The fabric is cool. really. I would wear it.

    I know the thing with getting the size wrong. Happens to me quiet oftern, just because I’m too lazy to measure.

    I love the fabric especially, and it really works with the cut of the top. What is the pattern number?
