Pattern Description: MISSES’/MISSES’ PETITE SHIRT AND SASH: Semi-fitted shirt has shoulder princess seams and stitched hems. B: button tab belt carriers. C: roll up option with button tab on sleeve. A/B, C, D cup sizes.
I made view B, with the button tab sleeves.
Sizing: 6-20. I made a 12 with the D cup front
Fabric Used: Perky Plaid Stretch Cotton from Gorgeous Fabrics (of course). For once it’s not sold out!
Needle/Notions Used: Stretch 75/11 needle, thread, Pro-Sheer Medium fusible interfacing and Shirt Buttons from Fashion Sewing Supply.
Did it look like the photo or drawing when you got through? Yes
How were the instructions? Good. There are no surprises in this pattern, and the instructions are clear
Construction Notes: I cut a size 12 with the D-cup fronts. I used a single layer layout to get the plaid matched. I got distracted at one point, and if you look closely you can tell. But it’s not so bad that I won’t wear it. In fact, most people won’t even notice.
I cut the pockets on the bias for contrast. I finished all the seams with my serger, taking time to hand finish the collar and cuffs. I used the narrowest width stitch on the automatic buttonholer.
Likes/Dislikes: I LOVE the different cup sizes in one pattern! I love shoulder princess seams – they make it so much easier to fit. I really like the lines of this pattern. I like the camp-shirt style sleeves with tabs.
There is nothing that I don’t like.
Would you do it again? Would you recommend it? Yes and yes. This is a great basic that I could see making in all sorts of fabrications.
Conclusion: A great pattern! I will definitely make this again. I’ll get lots of wear out of it. And check it out – I even got DH to take a picture of me in it!
If you haven’t got this one in your stash, I highly recommend picking it up.
