Readers, the shirt is finished!
|The back consists of two halves that meet at the center back stripe.|
I know I'm not the only one who thinks this print has a Dr. Seuss-ian flavor (that yellow, those black markings) -- it was the first thing that came to mind when I purchased the fabric.
In the end, I decided to add two rows of ruffles on the shirt fronts. I had to use those ruffles somehow.
Here was the original fabric laid flat (below). I'd love to see how other people have used it.
This shirt -- which I made with the same vintage McCall's pattern as the shirt I debuted last week -- will be a great addition to my warm-weather wardrobe and has definitely turned me onto the possibility of ruffles.
I'd never added them to a shirt before -- have you?
Have a great day, everybody!
