Description

I wanted to make something comfortable and easy, something that would be cute with jeans. I used the Butterick B5211 pattern. It was a super fast pattern to make, but look like a shapeless sack when I was done, and the fabric I chose (which I love) was just a little too underwhelming once it was all sewn. I ended up putting in two darts in the back of the shirt to give the garment some shape and adding a zipper so that it could be removed easily since I tightened the fit. Then I made a Peter Pan collar and added ribbons for the detailing on the front and along the hemline and sleeves. The project turned more time consuming than I had planned, but I am very pleased with the final result.

Material Notes

Cotton from Ikea, grosgain and satin ribbons, broadcloth for the collar, zipper.
