I finished making a shirt for myself. I used a Easy New Look pattern number 6871. It was very easy and it has a nice classic look to it. I have a bit of a belly from birthing five children and I like how the shirt hangs and isn’t tight on my permanent baby bump.
The shirt has gathers in the front and back. I did a bit of top stitching too.
The sleeves are 3/4. Good for me so I am not always pulling up my sleeves when doing dishes or cooking.
A couple of other finishes are my Farmer’s Wife 1930’s blocks. I have made three so far and working on a forth.
I am using reproduction fabrics for all of the blocks in hopes that I will make enough for a quilt to go on the livingroom couch. These two blocks are Patricia (top) and Patience (bottom).
I am joining up with Amanda today. Can’t wait to see all your finishes!
