Butterick 4985



I know this pattern has been done many times on PR, (B4985) but I still like it! I'm currently working on view "A" with collar. This is such a cute shirt, and I soo love collars,........but I am not good at all with sewing on collars, lol. I would really hate to mess up such a cute shirt, but I know I must conquer my fear of this! I purchased this really cute stretch pink poplin from Hancock, and I only purchased enough for this view, no extra. YIKES!!!! I've already cut out and fused the pieces, so when I get home tonight, it's on. I know in the future I need to learn how to alter patterns, which I've never done, and after closely looking at this shirt, and already cutting it out, I wish I knew how to make it longer, (bummer) I like long shirts, I'm like 5'9. Oh, and the FBA, I really need a hands on, or visual on doing that, my bodices never really fits great at all, they're okay but not great fitting, ya know? Well, I'll update soon.

Before I go, my next project I'm attempting...



This is Simplicity #2694, I'm working on this dress too! Similar to the view on the top left. I'm working with a slinky tricky fabric for the first time and it is a booger! lol

Later....
