Ever since I saw this on Angry Chicken awhile back, I have been itching to make a similar shirt. The pattern really is scary, but, like Amy, I liked that it reminds me of my favorite Forever 21 shirt. it's nice and basic, so you can do all sorts of things to it to make it slightly different and build a whole wardrobe of adorable shirts! I think I'll add some cute buttons to the collar of my next one.
mine looks like it's a little bit longer than Amy's, but it could just be the angle of the photo. I was sitting on the ground looking up. Although, I did make it long, because I wanted it to fall below my waist (just like the aforementioned forever 21 shirt). This is now my one and only yellow shirt. I've always loved yellow clothing, but, at the same time, I have a strong aversion too it. i have fair skin that seems to look washed out in most tones of yellow. I bought this same fabric for the baby quilt I'm working on, and I thought it was mellow enough to be all right for me to wear, but it's still bright and sunny. Plus, by sticking in a different fabric at the top, I was hoping to to break up the color a little just in case.
It's been awhile since I've sewn a garment for a grown-up (I made a dress for myself last summer), and there was a little seam ripping and swearing involved, but in the end, it turned out the way I had envisioned. That's always a good thing.
I'm getting ready for another weekend of home projects. I doubt I'll have much time to work on the never-ending vintage stripe blanket and baby quilt, but I'm going to try. I simply HAVE to finish that quilt this next week.
Have a great weekend, friends!
