I made my fourth shirt this weekend. The first three were a bit of a disappointment but this third one is just what I wanted. I used Simplicity 4177 and made view D. I made the Built by Wendy version of this pattern on Saturday but it was way too small. This one is really similar (the instructions are almost identical) so I altered this pattern to make it simpler. I skipped the neckline facing (because I didn’t want a split collar), all the trims, the neck tie, and the hem on the sleeves (I did a stay stitch instead). The bottom section was too tight so I added small panels to get a better fit – when I added them I did a French seam with the raw edges showing.
I love the casual look of it and it is super comfy. Finally!
I live with my super hubby and our sweet little boy in N. California. We used to spend our time working on our house or spoiling our nieces and nephews but now we are too enthralled with our little boy to do much else besides take care of him.
