Soldier pose - didn't know what to do with my hands
The proof ... I made a shirt that I can wear!
I work in an office three days a week and I sometimes need to look presentable. As ladies with a large bust know, it's very hard to find a well fitting shirt for office wear. I used McCall's 6035 pattern which offers four different sleeve options and cup sizes from A/B to D and also claims to be easy.
The pattern wasn't difficult but I did take a lot of time and care over it. Unfortunately I fitted between a 12 and a 14 so ended up buying both sizes of the pattern and I added an inch to the length too. It's the first time I have sewn princess seams.
I used the fancy sleeve option with drawstrings to gather up the sleeves and to tie in a bow at the bottom. I like this option and love a bit of extra detail. I should have checked that my sleeves were even though before the photo.
The fabric is a cotton with some stretch which I found at spotlight on the $5 table and is a silvery blue.
I dragged poor Ayden off the couch to take the photo's. He had his wisdom teeth out yesterday and is a poor thing, who didn't want the camera any where near him.
