It is Zara's turn again.
(Zara and Elsa jumped quite a few turns at the end of last year and they have been waiting patiently for their 'go' on the rota).
Zara wanted a nice smart shirt and, quite by chance, chose a shirt pattern that I had sewed many many times for my self when she was a baby.
I remember the shoulders were a little wide for my liking, I think I may have added a shoulder pad? (It was the late 90's)
After fitting the side seams ( and tapering the waist quite a bit) it was looking the same on her.
I trimmed the shoulders, front
I also pinched an inch from the width of the sleeve.
Zara picked some ombre woven cotton gingham from the stash.
MoP buttons, of course.
A double narrow hem looks neat when the shirt is left undone.
We flipped the yoke and cut it on the bias.
Just a little bit Country.
Just a little bit snappy.
Perfect for work experience.
Miss Keller had a placement in a primary school.
We added some ease over her hips but may add a little more next time.
She loves it!
I totally love her!
