For some reason this really simple shirt design popped in my head and the next thing I knew I bought fabric to make it! Self drafted pattern made with a 1950s vintage reprint fabric, gathers at the bust line, and white binding on the armholes and neck. It was only two pieces to cut and sew together so it was quick to make, too.
Now with pattern! I’ve included a 7 size downloadable and printable pattern. Instructions are included in the PDF. Make sure to print the pattern without scaling! And match up the pages according to the lines and notches. If your size isn’t included you can read up on some techniques in the learning section for sizing a pattern.
NOTE: I’m still learning to make patterns so I would greatly appreciate any tips, criticism, notes, anything about the pattern or the instructions. Pattern making has proven to be a lot more complicated than I imagined and I’d love feedback.
We're taking a sneak peak at the upcoming fashion design course.
