Saturday Night Shirt

I finished sewing Bob’s second birthday shirt this week. It’s a good fit! Pattern is Tropical Shirt from Wardrobe by Me. Fabric is Mid-Century Modern Boomerangs on cotton lawn from Spoonflower. Buttons are teal shell from Button Bird.

I didn’t do a very good job matching the pattern. I did try with the fabric I had, but I needed more. I decided to make do.

Hope you’re having a good weekend!

Friday FO: Marvel-ous Shirt!

I finished sewing Bob’s Marvel shirt. It’s a perfect fit! And he loves it!

Pattern is Tropical Shirt from Wardrobe by Me. Fabric from The blue is Kona cotton in Paris Blue. Buttons from ButtonsNDesigns on Etsy.

I had a blast sewing this shirt. This was my first yoke burrito, and I enjoyed learning that! I had no trouble with the buttonholes. (Interfacing is key.) I struggled a bit with the set in sleeves and the split hem. I finished the seam allowances with French seams, and that complicated things. I’m going to watch some tutorials on split hems so I can improve next time.
