|If only I looked like that in the shirt!|
|Here is the line drawing.|
I need more basic clothes in my wardrobe, so that means more black, white and neutrals. My first attempt at the ruche sleeved, raglan top was in some jersey from Tissu fabrics. I think I used the viscose/cotton/lycra jersey, but I bought it a year ago, so I can't be sure.
|I like the fact that the shirt is long and sort of ruches up around your tummy. Kind of flattering and likely to cover the gap that forms when you bend over in jeans.|
|A straight on shot.|
|You can really see that the shoulders are too big in this shot.|
Also, I found that my twin needle sewed the hems *perfectly* when I dropped the tension to 0. Yes, zero, null, nada. I used no glues, tapes, interfacing or any other aids.
Finally, a few thoughts on your kind comments regarding my StyleArc Cassie pants. Yes! Ballet flats would be great, but it is still way too cold here for those. I'd love a cold weather, flat shoe option other than knee high boots. Footwear determines a whole outfit. If you start with knee-high boots, you are pretty much locked into skinny jeans or a skirt. It works, but variety is the spice of life!
