What did you like or dislike about the pattern? I like that the pattern is extremely simple, no experience required! As a beginner, you’ll get a good idea of how necklines are done with bias strips for shirts. It’s easy to sew up, great for a wardrobe builder.
Would you sew it again? Absolutely, already have! You’ll see that OOTD I wore for a Valentine’s alternative outfit.
What would you do different? Hmm, nothing to the pattern itself. Thought of adding a pocket, but otherwise it’s a simple, loose-fitting pattern with minimum alterations necessary.
Any advice for a fellow DIY’er? The bias can be cut in 2 halves to save on fabric! (Just remember to add a bit of seam allowance for the re-attachment. Skip this part altogether by purchasing bias strip (precut) of similar fabric or different fabric for a pop!
