I think this one looks like some kind of chef’s coat, but it is comfortable. The buttons aren’t really white but are light aqua and came from a trip to the Gunne Sax outlet in San Francisco many many years ago. I have a big bag of those buttons and have used them on two garments this year, so being a sewing hoarder does pay off in the end. I’m going to wear this wearable muslin for morning walks. This fabric may be stretchy, but it certainly is easy to wrinkle. Look how crushed the portion below the pockets got just during the time I was putting it on Madam Merp. Oh well, I only paid $1 a pound for it. My thoughts on this version were that the neckline is still too high for me (I have since lowered it by 2 inches for the pink shirt), the back is too narrow (also since altered), and this sleeve with an elbow dart is not my favorite since it is too wide and the dart is annoying to wear.
The sewing on the pink shirt is done, all that is left to do is to sew on the buttons. Right now it is hanging out in the heat of the day to dry it off from all the water I used to remove the water soluble marker on the buttonholes.
Now it is time to cut out Shirt No. 5. This time I am going to try out a 3/4-sleeve blouse with princess seams and maybe a back yoke.
