Shirt with Bat Sleeves – Burdastyle 04/2015 #123A

I made this top in a lightweight woven from an offcut’s bundle I got once at the fabric store. Just had enough material, the print hints at horizontal striping. A heavier fabric would give it nice body but I’m still happy with the summery results. Though I probably should have pulled the top neckline edge inside more, I like the square look coming through. For neatening the seams I zigzagged twice and made them rolled; with a serger I’m sure they’d be quicker and tidier defo! Location: Takapuna
