after more than a week of trying to figure out
how to make a nice-fitting button down shirt,
I think I can finally settle down with my 8th prototype.
|New MTM doll trying on the latest prototype before even getting her own name LOL|
|Some prototypes that didn't make the cut|
I going to try my latest pattern on a lighter fabric,
especially the white version.
I like to imagine my girls in white, fresh ,crisp,
button down shirts as they make their way to whatever it is that makes them happy =D
I believe light cotton and denim fabrics can easily work well with this pattern,
which is just a teeny tiny improvement from these earlier prototypes below:
|3rd prototype which looks great on MTM but awkward on some girls|
|6th pattern/prototype already nailed the fit|
|Added some front pockets and reduced the collar size on this 7th pattern|
I am aiming to also come up with shirt dress versions from these patterns this week.
Shirt dresses are such fun pieces and very versatile, too!
Personally, I had several in my lifetime.
Hoping to get a new one (that fits my heavier body now) this year.
So, yeah.. that's what has been occupying my brain
and employing my hands lately.
How about you, guys? What's up in your crafting tables?
Share away and let's chat, ayt? See you then!
hugs and kisses,
For my WIPs, I am quite active in Instagram
as Blogger mobile is still not available in my country.
