Got shirts on the brain



  So, I've haven't gotten anything finished to show today, although I've finished another M6957. I just wasn't able to get any pictures of the latest version. I have been busy in my sewing room this week, and I really seem to have blouses on the brain, like really tough! I'm quite glad, especially since that I really need to amp my wardrobe up in this area with simple button down blouses. I think they are a great way to build your  wardrobe, while helping you feel put together.

  I've been working on B5786, view "C", except that I chose to add the collar with the collar stand. This is truly a great pattern if you are new to making shirts, which I am, but with a little common knowledge you can produce a great shirt. I do think that this blouse runs a little on the small side and thought, hmm that maybe that it was just be me; however, another reviewer noted this on PR as well.. It's not small in that it is unwearable, but one or two cheeseburgers and I'm done, bahahaha!


I'm making view "C" but using the collar from B, and D


 The shirt is almost complete, it just needs buttonholes and buttons, which I will pick up tomorrow once I go get a few patterns that I don't need, right?! I do have two or three patterns right now that I'm thinking of next, which are all shirt patterns, since I'm in that mode... I'm thinking of these patterns next:
I love all the views on this one B5678


I really love this pattern, and have seen some really
awesome reviews of this in blog land.. Lori's 
version, oh my word, it's beautiful!

We are not going to discuss this unfortunate fabric
choice, but the pattern is nice.. 

  Well, ladies I'll be back shortly hopefully with some finished garments to show! Have a great weekend everyone!   Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

  1. I like all your shirt picks! B5678 is NICE...I don't recall seeing it, but that one will make a great shirt for sure. And Lori's shirt is awesome! I think it's good that you made another M6957. If it's not broke, don't fix it! I liked your last version, can't wait to see this one!
