blue shirt for me

Thanks for all the birthday wishes yesterday! I had a great birthday and got to see the new Harry Potter movie-which was awesome! I loved it…and now the torture of waiting for the last part starts….grr…

so here’s something I made awhile ago for myself…….I know-shocker! Not something for the kiddos. I’ve been wanting to try out this pattern-so I gave it a shot with this blue flowered fabric I picked up thrifting for about $2. I figured if it didn’t work out, at least I didn’t waste the expensive stuff. I followed the advice here about pinching out an inch on the yoke-it worked great!

I like how it turned out! It’s a bit baggy in front so it’s good for those chubbier days. (ya know 😉

and this is my sassy pose. no head in the pics today-didn’t feel like showing you the sah-weet faces I make while posing. They’re winners, I’m telling you.


  1. So cute! I’ve been following your blog for ages, but I’ve never commented. However, my sewing room will be set up by next week and I’ll be back to sewing — can’t wait to try some of your patterns!
