How do you like that? No, not the sunset. The shirt! It's a real shirt, like something I would buy. I've been waiting for this moment ever since I started sewing clothes. Granted this is only my fourth shirt, but still. It's been a long time between each shirt, so I've been thinking about it forever.
The pattern is Vogue 8634. I eliminated the empire waist seam because it looked like it would not fall under the boobage correctly based on the other reviews at patternreview.com. The shirt turned out looser than I expected, but I kind of like it that way. The fabric was from the Japanese flea market. I was quite lucky with that. I never would have had enough fabric if the guy didn't give me some extra yardage free.
But I think I owe all the thanks to the serger. I suppose I could have tried it with my regular machine, but I never had confidence in using that for knits. Thank you, serger! I love you and I'm sure this is the start of a beautiful life together.
