I based this off of the Ute pattern. I think I executed it wrong… :( The tie-collar shouldn’t have come all the way down to the front. Oh well, I like it. :) It’s done in a sheer blue-gray material that I got for really cheap, and top-stitched in pink to match these little pink dots inside of bigger ochre dots that are on the fabric. Oh yea— I LEARNED HOW TO USE A DOUBLE NEEDLE! OHHHH YYEEEEAAAA!!! I was excited about that. I also put French seams on all of the seams and edges. Double excited that I managed to do that without getting really frustrated. The bottom hem is a bit uneven, but I like the top better tucked into my pants/shorts/skirt anyway. I don’t usually wear sleeves this puffed at the top, but I don’t mind it here. Also, the buttons are a bit hard to work, because I haven’t mastered buttonhole-making yet.
I love affordable fabric. Long live the remnant section! Four of the buttons match. The top one is the same color, so it sort of matches…
