(No new camera yet.) I finished the other version of the pattern I used for my chambray shirt. When I made the chambray shirt, I was confused about some of the construction methods. After making this version, all the methods made sense because the pattern was made for this shirt to work.

I used basic white cotton and doubled each piece, so it’s not transparent. It’s more formal than what I usually wear which is good. It gives me something to dress up in when I need to.

I couldn’t decide what buttons to use so I asked on facebook what I should do. (If you like answering questions, follow my facebook page, because I put up questions every once in awhile.) Thanks for all the responses! It really helps me figure out what to do.

I decided to go with the plain classic buttons. I felt like it went better with the shirt. If I would’ve had vintage fabric, I would’ve used the vintage buttons.

Now I need to make a cute pencil skirt to wear with it!

  3. Thanks for the inspiration! Especially the 3/4 cuffed sleeves. I'm tall so long sleeves are usually short and I end up pushing them to just below my elbow. Then I have to pull them down when I put on a jacket. With the cuff, it will keep them from sliding up my arm when I do. I need some fall tops and I'll use those sleeves on a few.
    Great job!
