Pink and polka dots

I have been doing some more sewing for myself using some fabric that has been in my stash for a few years.  The first is beautiful pink linen. I can’t remember what I bought the linen for originally but I have used it to make a shirt.It looks pale and washed-out in pictures but the finished article does look good. Detail of the pocket stitching.

The pattern was not as well defined as most patterns I use and I had to wing it in parts where the instructions were missing or not clearly explained but overall I was happy with the result.  I lined the yoke as the linen is fairly see through and I didn’t want the edge of the seam on the yoke to show through.

The only buttons I had were see through and I used them but I was not happy with the end result.

I decided to buy some other buttons where the button hole would not be so obvious.

The second item is from this pattern:

A bit way out there in the fabric but I will wear it at home.
