Last make for the year!

Burdastyle 10/2011 #128 – this image is of view A, though I made version B where the tie neck is not fully attached to the collar.

I don’t know why I feel compelled to apologize for the poor pics – it is my blog and I’ll do what I want 🙂

I’m trying not to be so hard on myself – I’m not as happy with the shirt as I should be(?) For whatever reason I end up being slightly disappointed with everything I’ve made so far. I have made huge leaps and bounds in my sewing! The shirt is definitely wearable, and next time I make it (and there will be a next time) it will even closer to perfection!

During the last few weeks I have been reflecting over how I want next year to be different. And that includes being more kind to myself 🙂 2017 will be my year of Self Compassion. Happy New Year!

Pattern Sizing:
I made size 36

Fitting/design changes made:

  • Raised depth of the V by 4.5 cm in order to make it more work appropriate
  • Shortened the sleeves by 3cm.
  • Shortened the body length by folding it up twice and sewing a blind-hem by hand

Next time I would:

  • make the neck band thinner
  • lower/round out the neck

Some inspiration for next time

  1. Your shirt looks lovely, very chic! I think we can all be very critical of our sewing, it’s good obviously as it helps us learn & grow but I always try & remind myself I’d never be nearly as critical of something I bought in the shops, indeed before I started sewing is never even have noticed the imperfections in shop bought clothes. Oh and I also apologize for bad photos, not sure why either!

    1. Thanks! I definitely look closer at the details of clothes, though I guess I’ve always been a bit picky? I think I have champagne tastes on a beer budget or however the saying goes 🙂
