There was a time, years ago, when I made all my clothes. I would alter patterns, combine patterns and even make my own patterns. The days of making my own clothes stopped for many decades, but recently, I have taken a liking to it again. Gone are the days of making a pattern without any size adjustments. It's difficult to know what pattern will look good on my body these days. I have a style, it's quite casual, but every now and then I think I'd like to try something different.
I saw a dress that Sally @thequirkypeach made on her Instagram account. I thought it might look cute in the Paperie knit (by Amy Sinibaldi) I had bought with a dress in mind.
YUCK! Talk about a sewing failure. The dress was hideous both in fit and style and I was sick that I had ruined such beautiful fabric. I was determined to salvage enough of the fabric to make something I would be proud to wear.
I did it. It's the Flared and Flirty Tee. It's my own design and one I hope to turn into a pattern.
The hemline is rounded and dips in the front and back in a slight curve.
