All that polka dots again

This is a shirt I did for work, again that free-fabric-wear-the-garment-twice-a-week-deal. I’m not totally satisfied with the pattern, so next shirt will be based on my basic block. I shortened the sleeves, and didn’t put buttons all the way down so I can wear it with a high-waisted skirt. I made the skirt as well, but I have to make it smaller – too low waist now, haha! The skirt fabric is also horrible to work with, and I nearly promised myself never to sew skirts again. We’ll see how that goes with my already cut-out Kaisa and tempting Colette Beignet.

Material Notes

cotton/polyester for shirting fabric, some polyester bi-stretch for the skirt.

    You remain true to your style… and I like it! :-) Looks really good!!! The skirt is great as well! (Bi-stretch or jersey is sooo complicated to fit, I always have to cut it out one size smaller.)

      Thanks immi! I’m at least staying away from bi-stretch. Skirts from now on will be satin cotton stretch or twill stretch (I think I have 15m laying around…)
