Favorite Friday


My favorite project this week! Made from the infamous Simplicity 3835 pattern that everybody seems to be using these days. This was my first time using it and seriously it was a breeze!

I made it out of some pretty boring fabric thinking that if it didn't turn out it was no big deal, but if it did it would be okay to wear. I added the trim along the bottom hem to add a little interest to the rather dull shirt. I did change a couple other things (of course!) I skipped the elastic in the arms. I hate how that feels. And I ripped out the side seam a little to make a little extra room for the rear. As seen below! (Woohoo, my butt is on the Internet! Aren't you so proud mom?)

I think next time I would like to try the pattern in a nice knit. The pattern doesn't actually have that listed as an option, but what's the worst that could happen, right?


Have a great weekend!!

It looks great! I love that you didn't do the elastic... I was looking at that pattern online and thinking about hating that on the sleeves too. I also like that you made the little opening at the sides on the bottom - great idea!

I'm pretty sure I, too, have this pattern and you have made it even more appealing to get on with making it. Adorable!

That shirt is absolutely lovely :) I will have to give that shirt a try! I may have to make some alterations though since I just found out that I'm expecting! :) So exciting :)

Love the shirt!
