Latest project using pattern Simplicity 2612 from the Project Runway line. I used the short length and long sleeve.
Changes made to the pattern: Changed the front from a button-down to a pull-on shirt. Instead of the collar, I made a tie front using same fabric.
Total cost: $2.00 (for fabric from Walmart)
When I finished sewing up this top, I was initially unhappy with it. I felt the purple color was too light to be flattering on me and the shape was just boxy all over. However, after playing around, mixing it with other items in my closet, I've found this shirt to be much more appealing and good for layering.
Here I am heading out of the movies wearing my new shirt.
