Finally decided it was time to use my Greenfield Hill voile by Denyse Schmidt. I love the fabric and of course black and white is always a winner in my book. I grabbed my Stylish Dress Book and got to work the other day. It was pretty quick to sew! This was the second garment I’ve sewn out of this book, you can check out my dress (View E).
I altered the pattern a bit, making the sleeves a little less full. The pattern calls for elastic at the cuffs, but if I made it again, next time I would do a bound cuff, just to make it look more finished.
At first I thought it was the most horrible looking shirt, not sure if it is the style and fit or the fabric or more of just a combination of the two. I’m warming up to it the more I wear it though and no one made fun of me a work because of it, so I think it’ll be okay. Whenever I spy printed shirts at stores I never buy them because I figure I have enough fabric that’s much prettier to make my own. That’s the great thing about sewing!
