Tip for sewing with white fabric: be really careful not to stab yourself with a pin. I may have done that while sewing this shirt. Thankfully, I only got a tiny bit of blood on the shirt and it’s not noticeable. Oops.
I made this shirt to go with several of my dressier skirts so I could have an entirely me-made ensemble to wear to Mass or special occasions.
The shirt was pretty easy to make, and I love the ruffle on the hem! It’s very loose fitting because it’s a pull-on shirt and has no zipper. After I’d sewn the neck facing and turned it under I decided that I wouldn’t do the first option the pattern gave- tacking it down at the seams- and do the second, basting the whole thing down on the inside and topstitching. Except I didn’t bother basting it. I just stitched it. Luckily it looked fine on the right side.
Here’s a side view:
I can’t wait to wear this shirt with all the skirts I’ve made!
