Summer Shirt

I finished my Summer Shirt (from Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross). I used a thicker fabric than recommended because I wanted to wear this in autumn and possibly winter (with something underneath). The thicker cotton made the button loop a bit tricky and in the end I made a wider version than the pattern.

As I know I will never button it up, I didn’t even bother to sew a button on.

The pattern for the sleeves didn’t have the basting marks marked on, so I just made it up as I went along.

This pattern was really easy to sew (and the instructions were easy to follow – once I worked out how to use my bias making tool). I’m sure I will make it again.

Weekend Sewing

My copy of Weekend Sewing (by Heather Ross) arrived. I bought it from here.

I have plans to make the summer blouse (here’s a picture of someone else’s) and the ‘Go Everywhere Shirt Dress’ – I can’t seem to find an image of that one.

The instructions look good and the design and style of this book are beautiful. Now I just need to make something.
