    Thank you so much for your comments. I am so happy you liked my first garment. Now I am working on a long dress. I have more dress sketches, so I hope I can make more garments from my drawings. Best regards, Roberta

    This is a very cute and well made shirt… :) The colors are so warm and cozy, perfect for autumn wear (and summer, too!). The buttuns give the shirt such a perfect look, wrapping it up neatly, if you know what I’m getting at? Lovely detail. I’d LOVE to have a shirt like this, but can’t remember seeing a textile like this… Perhaps I need to take a trip to a more specialized textile shop. Get away from the yummy cheap ones… Hmm. Anyways, such a lovely shirt, great job! Looks so well on you.

    Nice! I also have this pattern but haven’t had a chance to make anything from it yet, so it’s good to see a finished version. I really like your choice of fabric, too.

    I have this same pattern and did the collared version with the 3/4 sleeves. I have at least 2 shirts from this pattern and I love them both. Very figure flattering and comfortable. Nice job and love your choice of fabric and buttons.
