Blue Shirt

Too bad this shirt doesn't fit! I love the fabric - very soft and pretty. Even though I sewed the biggest size, it's too small. I had Katie try it on and it's too big. I'll keep it until I see Anna and perhaps, like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, it will fit just right. I inherited the fabric from Anna so it's only right it goes back to her.

The pattern is Simplicity 2181. It's a strange pattern; the front has large dart-like sections that are pulled forward and put through a band (hard to see on this picture). The front seam is open over halfway down. Because of the band creating gathers, that is not evident.

Hopefully, one day, this shirt can be pictured actually on a person.
