Los Angeles, Cal...






Hey fellow sewers. I made myself a shirt and was wondering what you all thought. I made the original pattern for the shirt, sewed it and added a funky detail out of safety pins. My favorite style of shirt is the tuxedo shirt, worn casual or dressed up…so I made something I could wear to parties or interviews. The shirt fabric was $4, the buttons $1, and the safety pins $10 (had to buy 10 packs because each pack had 4 different sizes and need a bunch of only one size). Thanks for looking:)

Material Notes

cotton, plastic buttons, and brass/gold tone safety pins




Garment Type

    Thank you for the nice comments on my project and taking the time to look. The only reason I did short sleeves was a personal preference and I wanted to make it a bit more casual. Thank you again:)
