Everyday Shirt

At last have invested in a dress form. No more shooting my reflection in the mirror and having to apologize. I had a 50% off coupon at Joann's and my enabling sister Brooke, showed me the way to improve my photos. Sigh. So happy.
This is the simplest form of the designs I am making and will serve to provide comfortable everyday wear. A tee underneath, or a mock turtleneck for colder weather, and just alone for perfect days like today. The fabric is also from Joann's, just a nice cotton batik.
My only invention was the side panel pockets. I am remembering all the 'kool' sewing ideas from years ago.


  1. What a yummy shirt that will look great on you and fit your personality!
    Keep at it......very much enjoying your garment progress.

  2. I think you are going to LOVE having a dress form! Great investment.... Beautiful shirt!

  3. Love the pocket detail - pockets are so important!!

  4. Hi Mel, I made two shirts from your fabric many years ago....I still have them, do they fit? I'm afraid to try on. Nancy on L. I.
