Hi everyone! It's been a while. I made a shirt that I thought I'd blog about. I wish I was coming back with something more exciting, but it's going to be a while before I take pictures of anything because it's cold outside and I'm a wuss. haha, so this will do for now.

It's actually the same exact shirt I made for my sister Sadie a while back (posted here), just without the collar. I used Simplicity 6721, and added length and a back zipper.

It's a really lightweight knit so it doesn't hold up the heavy metal zipper well, I should have thought that through better. It works ok, but the neckline looks wavy because of the darn zipper. So that's basically driving me crazy.

I do like it. Truthfully I haven't worn it much but I feel like if I give it some time, I'll forget about the flaws and be more comfortable wearing it. haha


I hope everyone's doing well! What have you been up to this past year? What is the best thing going on in your life and something that could be going better?  And yes, I'm talking to you. Whenever I read blogs, I always assume they're talking to other people but if you're reading this then I'm talking to you. :)
