I skipped out on a putting buttonholes on the sleeve tabs and pocket tabs because I just wanted to get done. I’m hoping nobody looks that closely at it. Here’s how to open a buttonhole.
I finally made something from a sewing pattern for myself from start to finish. I haven’t used an actual sewing pattern for myself since I was in college or a couple of years. My sister-in-law kindly sent me some patterns which gave me the motivation to make something for myself. I used McCall’s M6512 pattern.
The pattern calls for a little lighter weight fabric, but I decided on using chambray because I hate wearing multiple shirts in the summer. I didn’t want to make a shirt that was sheer.
I love that it can be dressy or casual. I also love that it isn’t form-fitting.
