After finding this lovely shirt, I wanted to make something similar but without the long sleeves (one-handed persons nightmare), and I also wanted a Peter Pan collar (considering that you know, I never make things with Peter Pan collars..) ha, so I decided to just make it instead of buy it. Then on a whim I decided to make it a button down because any chance I can get of not having to insert a zipper I will gladly take.
The gold sequin fabric is from Spandex House (in the "Lt Gold" color), and the cream fabric is just from Joann's. (Same fabric I used for this Banksia top, and the lining for these bridesmaid skirts. I'm in love with it in case you can't tell, ha I love the way it flows.)
I love the back yolk (pictured above, no I'm not just including an awkward shot of my backside for the fun of it), ha and I also love the fabric-covered buttons down the front but I'm not loving the fit of this shirt. It's just.. awkward, I don't even know how to explain it. I think I probably should have made a size smaller but then I feel like it would have been too short or something. Grr I don't know, it's driving me crazy that I can't figure out why I don't like it. I did wear it to school today though and these girls completely made my day when they came up to ask me where I got it. I LOVE when people ask me that because then I get to feel all awesome and be like "oh I made it!" haha, life's little pleasures.
This last picture has struggle written all over it but it's the only one where my hair isn't hiding the collar so I thought I'd include it anyways.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Anyone have any fun plans? I'm not just asking to ask by the way, I sincerely want to know. ha, what are you guys doing? I don't have any plans but I always love hearing about everyone else's love life's so feel free to divulge. :)
