This shirt should be a simple pattern but …not form me!!! I have done a lot of sew and rip away and I realized that I have a lot of work to do on basics techniques !! The pattern is number 117 from Burda magazine 8/2009 .

I have also done a flower from the same fabric of the shirt based on Alexi’s tutorial( I have put a security pin on It so I can move it where i want. Now I’m using it on an elastic band for the hair.

Material Notes

light weight cotton




Garment Type

    this looks just great in the print you have chosen – nice interpretation and so worth your effort. Sewing is just sometimes like that a bit bothersome…..and how is it that it’s always the simplest looking things that give us that bother :)
