Hmm...pretty sure this isn't my size.
But the collar meets at the top! But who wears this sort of shirt all buttoned up...?
That's better: unbuttoned and sleeves rolled up. The sleeves are comically large--I think I could fit both of my arms into one. Below, button placket, with some pleats for added volume.
For whatever reason, this shirt gave me such a hard time to construct (over 6 hours! What?!). I went into it thinking the sewing would be the least of my worries, but the right and wrong sides of this fabric are only barely distinguishable, so I ended up putting wrong sides out on multiple occasions. So much of this top was ripped out and redone. As I've mentioned to my husband, patternmaking class really brings out the obsessive-compulsive perfectionist in me!
Back, with yoke and pleat (for additional added volume :).
At least I have my own sloper set (now complete, after I drafted the skirt and sleeve pieces this weekend) and can use my newly learnt patternmaking skills to create a casual shirt in my own size, should I feel the need!
Does this count as a Resewlution garment? Probably not, since I'm not wearing it....
