Pleated Shirt Experiment

I love pleats. In everything. So I decided to take my basic shirt pattern, add some inches to the front, and get to pleating. First version turned out pretty good. I might decide to make my own bias tape and redo the neckline, since pleats add a little bit weirdness to a regular hem. I'm mostly glad the pleats are all even and it's wearable.

Love the green color. Next, I think, is my first patternless knit shirt.

New Year's Eve Shirt

So, the dress turned into a shirt. I'm really happy with it. Just not with the pictures...I remember when I had a great camera. I'll be honest, part of the reason I don't blog is because of the picture quality.

Anyway, here's the random terrible photos.

Shoulder details (lace)

And the lace back with a better view of the color.
