I started this shirt awhile ago, got upset by the neckline and put it away, then came back last week to finish it. I used the Jennifer pattern for the main part of the shirt, but I cut a wide neck and it turned out too floppy. So to finish it, I used my leftover fabric to add a big ruffled collar, and now I really love how it turned out! I didn’t have a lot of fabric, so it’s the tiniest bit too short. Oh, well.
I love the keyhole back, and the single button!
