My ‘See & Sew’ version cost me $5.00 – ($2.50 shirt material – the material was 50% off & I’m estimating $2.50 for scrap fabrics & eye hook closure) – Compare to the $65.00 price tag on Mod Cloth! I made my own pattern for the first time and I think it turned out very well.
I did use rayon material which was extremely ‘slippery’ and the biased neck & arm hole edges just about did me in (that’s why the flowers are on the opposite side of the original shirt…they are covering up a very wonky neckline). The shirt will definitely have to be dry cleaned but it is so soft, sweet and worth it!
The flowers are handmade rosettes and they took the bulk of my time. I made 2 or 3 every night while watching television. I made several different rosette styles to add to the mis-matched feel.
rayon, woven cotton, rosettes
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
