I have now made a second version but this time it is version A. I used a teeshirt fabric which was much more flexible/drapey than the previous fabric used, in fact I think it was a bit too flexible so next time I will use a fabric with a structure in between the two.
I had bought this fabric when I bought the Ikat fabric and I thought I would make a shirt dress with it but then decided I would just make a shirt. I had a pattern I had used many years ago and so cut out the fabric using that pattern.
It was all going beautifully until I came to the part where it said try the shirt on as you may need to adjust the side seams as the shirt pattern is in a full style. I tried the shirt on and it literally floated on me. I knew I would need to do some serious adjustments. I have obviously changed shape since I last made this shirt and the floppy style is no longer my style.
I had to adjust the side seams by at least 3 cms on each side seam and that was a huge amount of fabric. If I use this pattern again I will make it in a smaller size but I think I will probably just buy a new shirt pattern that will be in the modern style.
Further to the striped top I posted previously, I had fabric left over so thought I should make use of it rather than consigning it to the stash to lie dormant.
The pattern I used is this one. View B. This is one of my new patterns bought at the sale.
