Things I Learned
- Gathered neckline – I feel like my gathers ended up a little off-centered. Next time I will make the elastic tape a little longer and start it a little before and end it after the markings on the pattern. With elastic tape, the start and end of my gathers is never as good as the middle.
- Fabric type – This was made from a cotton blend knit from JoAnn’s. I didn’t really like the feeling of the fabric and after some washes it started pilling. 😦 I will try this shirt again with some more expensive fabric!
This was the first piece of clothing I made for myself. 🙂 It was a good fit on me so I was very pleased! It’s worth another shot to get the neckline perfected.
