Testing, testing

There's a shirt pattern that I knew I would have to make fitting adjustments to.  I chose a cotton print fabric rather than just plain muslin for my test piece.  Maybe I'd get lucky and have a nice finished shirt when all was said and done.  I don't typically wear busy prints, but this turned out nicely, especially with the contrasting collar.


  1. Love your use of contrasting fabrics!

  2. Thanks! I'm going to add contrasting pocket in front, after the fact, since I do use this as my garden frock and pockets come in handy.
