I didn’t want that New Look pattern I tried to make to go completely to waste. And I did really like the sleeves on the shirt. So I used my scoop tee pattern with the New Look sleeves to make a quick top.
The sleeves are a tad baggy. I will take them in a tiny bit if I ever make a shirt with these sleeves again. But overall, it was a very quick sew and it’s super simple and I like it. I am a sucker for shirring, that’s for shirr. Oh I’m so funny!
Today, I started keeping a sewing notebook. I don’t know why I’ve never done this before! I always think I’ll remember the little tweaks I make to a pattern or the tricks I pick up for a certain project but I never do remember. So I’m planning on writing down the important things about each item I make. I think it will be very helpful.
