Baby steps, sleeveless shirt

I made this shirt last summer (when I still had some free time) but I never found the time to take some decent pictures with it. I used the Burdastyle pattern “Button-down Top 06/2012 #103”. If I made it again I would make the shoulders a little bit narrower because I think the way it is now is not very flattering for my shape. I would probably also modify the bottom to make it round and longer on the back (like a normal man’s shirt) if I knew how to modify patters, but for now, baby steps.
It is definitely the most complete and difficult project I’ve done so far and I’m proud of how it ended up, I took care of all the details and didn’t botch anything :)

    Congratulations on a job well done! I really like it on you. kihli just gave you great instructions, you can do it that way or you can draw a line crosswise at the hip or somewhere below the waist, both in front and back bodice, cut it and separate it to add whatever length you want, that way you don’t have to bother redrawing the hem (if it is not a straight line or has a special detail, etc.

    This is a great blouse you’ve made, everything looks well made and the fit is also good! Congratulations for doing such a difficult project so well at the first time! For altering the hem, this is not so difficult. Just draw the side seams longer until they have the desired length and then you can free-hand the round shape of the hem as you like it. You can also make the back longer, just take care that the front and back side seams have the same length!
