Mushroom Shirt

Mushroom Shirt

I whipped up this shirt over the weekend. I made the pattern from a shirt that I have, and it was surprisingly easy. It made me wonder why I don’t make more of my own clothing. (Umm. I like to shop?) My friend gave me the fabric, which she found at an estate sale. The girl knows how to find a deal, and lucky for me, she shares! I’ve been collecting vintage buttons for a while now and decided to use them across the top. I love how it turned out. If I make another top soon, I’ll post the pattern. It was seriously easy.

The weather is finally starting to turn (fingers crossed!) and it was mostly sunny all weekend, although not super warm, but who’s complaining. I spent most of time in the craft room and in the park reading; it was perfect and lovely.

    Very pretty! I love color of the fabric. And the accents really make the design in the fabric pop. Congrats on your own design. I wish I could do such lovely work.

    I read all your posts, and have to comment for the first time, this top is fantastic. Please post the pattern for us beginner sewists. I really would look good in this one. It’s hard to look good in wovens when you’re curvaceous.
