my most favoritest shirt ever
Yes, favoritest, that’s a word, right?! This one really took me by surprise.
I had the pieces all cut out and ready for maybe two months or more and just now found some sort of motivation to pull it out and finish it.
I’m so happy I did. And I think I found that I’m not going to make clothes with quilting cottons ever again. Don’t get me wrong, I think there are a lot of great patterns and of course awesome fabrics out there. But for me the comfort and drape of this Alexander Henry cotton lawn is just amazing. It’s even on super sale at Pink Chalk Fabrics for a total bargain (I had originally purchased mine from fabric.com for a really great price, but this is great!).
I did not use interfacing as called for, I think that was the perfect choice. I also omitted the bottom band and just did a narrow hem. I think with the band as the pattern calls for, it would be too long. That’s the scoop!
Just a random side note: We had a blast taking these pics, it was 16 degrees that day. And that’s Emily toddling off in the distance – so funny. Oh, and I’m standing on a frozen lake. A special shout out to my husband for taking the pics, love you. Happy Friday everyone!
