Fargo, North Dak...
Pretty much what the title says. Made the pattern myself, based on a few shirts I own.
Rated Intermediate simply because knits can be a pain to sew, especially for a beginner, but the actual construction is quite easy.
The shimmer makes it dressy enough to wear for an evening out with a skirt or nice slacks, but the style is versatile enough (I think, anyway) that it could be worn as a day top too, paired with jeans.
Shiny knit fabric, found in the clearance $1 a yard bin.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
