I've been holding onto it waiting for spring. Well spring has arrived and I'm ready to make my version of it. I've even photographed it with white capris and my favorite summer slides. BTW, these will be the last of the photos taken by me in front of the fireplace. The trees are budding and it's starting to be really pretty outside my front door so I will be moving back outside with my next garment.
Here's a picture of my materials ~
Cotton/Poly Blend Shirting from Fabric Mart
Lace purchased from Fabric Mart several years ago
Pearl shank buttons from the button collection
I used my TNT button down mashup pattern ~ Butterick 5678 & Vogue 7700. The only change made was to the sleeve to add the lace detail.
The original shows the lace under the hemline of the sleeve but I didn't like my lace that way so I placed it over the hemline. It's the only change I made to my version of the designer shirt.
A few pictures of my new shirt ~
I've fallen in love with this button down mash-up. It fits in the front but has a nice swing to it from the extra fabric in the back. Since I've made it longer than my first version, it's very comfortable to wear and works with skirts as well as my jeans and leggings. There will be at least one or two more before I head into serious summer sewing.
Next on the cutting table is a new maxidress pattern. I've been accumulating a few new maxidress patterns to sew this summer. I need to add some additions to my maxi dress wardrobe...cause y'all know I love a good summer maxi!
...as always more later!
