shirt for my sister

I first made this using McCall’s 8441, a vintage pattern I’d found at the thrift store. It was gi-normous and the sleeves were a bit much, so I totally remade it. Apart from resizing it, I modified the yoke and sleeves and brought the waist in.

Material Notes

cotton, elastic

    It sounds like you changed every piece of this pattern with exception to the back. So is it your pattern or is it McCall’s? I have always wondered that. How much do you have to change before it is yours? I totally love this shirt. (if your pattern were on this site I would make it)
