This was a really straight forward pattern. I didn't make any changes, except I did put the buttonholes on the wrong side! :-) This is the second time I have made this faux pas, although this time it was intentional. While I did a great job (I think) matching the stripes on this shirt, the placket for the buttonhole side didn't match the way the button side did, soooo, switcheroo. Let's see if my daughter notices it! I used McCall's 6649 for this. The fabric was a cotton and it went together incredibly well. I definitely plan to use this again because I am making a "Chiffon-like" version tonight to take with me Saturday!

I'm so excited! This is a mother/daughter blog created for the sole purpose of channeling our craziness! I sew! I love to sew. When I'm not sewing, I think about sewing. I have been sewing since I was about 10 or 12 years old. I wish someone had told me back then that you could make a living doing something you love. I would have chosen a completely different path. So now, I just do it for the love of it all.
