Look! I made a top!

I made a shirt!I made a shirt!

It’s a slightly modified version of this pattern.. I didn’t do the double collar and changed the sleeves to be rolled. It’s the second top I’ve done from this pattern, and I’m slowing figuring out what works for me and what doesn’t, and altering it to fit. :)

And, it was actually a lot easier to sew this than trying to sew the t-shirt I attempted last week. I failed at the t-shirt, but this blouse I might actually wear! Success ;)

PS. Possibly should have ironed it before taking these photos.. sorry about that! Just keeping it real.


  1. Wow! That looks so perfect! I’m still on a much more basic level, but boy… how good it feels to be able to wear something you’ve done yourself!

  2. Claire I would really struggle sewing that so I think you’re amazing!

  3. Ma

    Wow I’m impressed…….very impressed :)

    That is amazing…nice work lady! Impressive indeed.

  5. Oh, YAY! I just started sewing about 6 months ago and have been loving the challenge. Your shirt is so stylish and comfy looking. I know you’ll get a lot of use out of it.

  6. I’m in the baby steps of sewing… pillows and jazz like that. Can’t wait till I get comfortable enough to sew my own clothes! Love this top!
