Once, years ago (at least 10) I was sewing some shirts for A. I don’t remember what pattern I was using since I traced it off without putting the number on the pieces, but I still have all the traced pieces. Time marched on and of the six shirts I cut out, I did sew some of them. A liked one, but rejected two others since her taste in fabric changed. Luckily, my sister is the same size so I passed on two finished shirts to her. I recently pulled out the ziplock bag with three more cut-out shirts waiting patiently to be assembled inside and decided to finish them up. I called my sister to see if the shirts I gave her years ago still fit, and they do, so I can go ahead and sew up the rest. Here’s the first one:
This is a classic style with collar and stand, curved hemline, and short sleeves. I have several short lengths of fabric to use up, so maybe I should cut out more of these shirts since both A and my sister are a petite size so the shirt requires very little fabric. Which means I will be replacing the UFO’s with more UFO’s to work on in the future.
