This was my final project for the semester. I had intended on making a chic vintage vogue jacket with a huge collar, but after i ruined the wool fabric grain for that I had to choose something else. I downloaded this pattern for free, found some plain linen I had in my stash, and added the scalloped lace for contrast on what I thought would be a booooring shirt.
I actually love this now, and even though I don’t wear this beige color often I do plan on wearing this out alot! Its the perfect combo of girliness and somber style-especially those poofy little sleeves.
I ended up getting a B on this due to my uneven sleeve ruffles, but I dont care cause this semester is OVER!
I wanted to hurt my sewing machine for refusing to sucessfully complete a buttonhole, I had to find another but it finally worked!
