Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

Here is my latest completed project.  It is the Jane Overshirt by StyleArc.  It was my first venture with the Australian patterns and I have to say I'm very please with the outcome.  The sizing is right on.  I did change the button spacing - my buttons were just a bit smaller than the pattern called for.  It called for 1/2' and didn't have enough to make me happy.  When I laid the buttons on the shirt at the pattern spacing, they looked insignificant.  I added buttons and it made it look much better, I think.  


I don't remember what the fabric content of this fabric is but it is light weight with a somewhat crisp hand and after washing, I was happy to discover it doesn't wrinkle much.  

If you haven't used StyleArc patterns before, they have minimal instructions and pictures.  I had started out with a 3/4 sleeve but couldn't get the slit to work to my liking so I cut it to the short sleeve.  I had been debating which length I wanted anyway.  I think I am actually happier with the short sleeve.
