The perfect storm! A ginghamalong challenge from Karen at Did You Make That? and a gingham fabric sale at The Drapery (it's still here). Woo hoo!
So the only question was, what to sew. I've been thinking about combining a couple of my favourite styles for a while - New Look 6407 and Christine Haynes' Sassy Librarian Blouse that's offered on Craftsy. I love elements of both shirts. NL6407 has extended waist darts and a curved hem. I really love the Sassy's collar and boat neck.
I used Christine's instructions for a fuss free collar. I also flat felled side and sleeve seams.
Check it out! I'm so happy with the end result. It looks great with capri pants.
