...plus an uncooperative model.
The shirt is the Ice Cream button-banded T-shirt from the Spring 2011 Ottobre Design. I used this horribly thin cotton knit that I had in my stash. I have a feeling this was one of those JA's clearance table or fabric.com's $1.95 section buys from a while back. I picked it for this project since a) it's aqua, b) I had enough for this shirt, c) I figured since the pattern had gathers along the chest that it would negate how sheer the fabric is. It worked but doing the center front button band was a test of my patience and it's far from perfect.
See how happy she is!
The pattern is fine, I just wouldn't use such a light weight fabric for it. The button band on the front is pulling the fabric across her chest forward some. I could have maybe alleviated that by making the neckline binding tighter but another downfall of the thin yucky fabric is that you can forget trying to rip out any mistakes...believe me, I tried!
It'll work for what it's intended to do. And Miss M actually likes the shirt but she didn't want her picture taken!
If you're wondering if it snowed....
Yes, it did and school was cancelled. Spring, where are you????
