Blue Animal Print Top

Trying out a pattern that doesn't require sleeve seeming.  I made it longer, didn't realized it wouldn't fit my hips, so I did side seams.  Luckily you can't see the seems (side or bottoms) in any of the photos because I used my rolled hem foot and I still need more practice.

This was just some inexpensive material to try it out.  And give me a shirt to wear on the weekends or around the apartment.  Not my favorite shirt.  Maybe a tie or belt would make it look nicer... and dark pants under it as the side seems don't flatter me.

This one's not my favorite, but it was a good way to try this pattern.  I used one back piece, folded it and just kept cutting down until I ran out of material.


Here's a flat view of the sleeve and part of the front.
 It as a 1985 pattern for a dress "make it tonight" series.  It's for a dress pattern (one size actually, but fit me perfectly) and has 2 lengths.  I did one back piece, it's suppose to zip or something in the back, but I made it a pull over.
