This is a free pattern! Can you believe it? It is Hot Pattern's Fringe Festival Shirt and you can download it here. It is an easy-peasey knit shirt - I know my name is Stacie and I am a knits junky. I haven't sewn a knit in 1 day.
Now I do have an ugly picture. It was taken in my sewing/my husband's storage room. Stop judging me!
Yes, it is a weird, dark shot, but I had to show it. This is after I hemmed it the first time. It reminded me of one of those men's Victorian era striped swim suits. Funny, yes, but not the look I was going for. I wound up cutting a straight hem as opposed to the cool curved one. I cut off about four inches on the long parts of the hem and like it much better now. Next time I make it I will shorten the shirt via the pattern.
I also skipped the front and back center seams. I was working with stripes and wanted the least chance of screwing them up. Also, the scarf part is raw edged. That is fine, but next time I may cut out two and sew them together to make it a bit thicker and hide the raw edges.
Matchy, matchy stripes! Oh yeah!
I had to show a back shot. There isn't much going on here. You can see the collar is just floppy, but I'm OK with it.
This was an easy win, and a free pattern! Now where did my eyebrows go....
