The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

I, Katelyn, do hereby swear that I will not add extra pockets, yokes or fancy plackets to my next sew weekly garment. I love this top, but I just finished it last night. The pockets, plackets and other fancy stuff took WAY longer than I had hoped. But, I love it. My husband now calls it my "bad ass-est" shirt. The pattern is from "Sew U" with lots of modifications. The fabric is a thin madras that my sister and I found at a yard sale for $2 (and went halfsies). The chambray from the yokes comes from a hootchie dress that I found in the trash.

Great job! Sleeve plackets terrify me- you are skilled!

Great job! The extra details came out great - even for the extra time they took ;)

Love your bad ass-est shirt, it's awesomely cool and equally love where the fabric came from…truly a shirt with a second life or a past life, how bad-ass is that?! Extremely!

It's all so beautifully made - right down to the cross cut pockets.

I'll believe that promise when I see it (say she who also spent ludicrous amounts of time adding pockets and knows well what you mean). Looks great however and is worth the time spent :-)

All that time spent on the shirt has a wonderful prize ... A great shirt! Great! Love, love,love!

Better to miss the deadline than forgo those "bad ass" touches, i say.
