May I introduce you to the fourth shirt in my series Building an Every Day Outfit? I am particularly happy with my latest creation. I did deviate from the directions. First, by skipping the casing for the elastic and instead sewing the elastic directly to the fabric following the line printed on the pattern. Secondly, I added four inches to the bottom of the shirt.
This was my first attempt at the shirt version. I had concern over finishing the sleeve hem, so I pre-hemmed before setting. It did take some fussing with to evenly distribute the ease, but the sleeve went together fairly easy.
I do like this shirt, mostly because it is COMFORTABLE. I purposely made it long, so I could wear a pair of leggings or skinny jeans.
