Way back in January, I made this pintucked shirt and blogged that it’s not so smart to pintuck prints. So I decided that this summer I’d do it again in a solid, so I chose pink linen.
I have to admit that I’ve been watching old episodes of Project Runway, and it’s been inspiring me to work a bit more freely with my dress form, so I switched up the collar from the original quite a bit. I like it, though it turned out a little more “sweet” than I intended.
All in all, I’m happy with it, though I know its flaws, like the button not being centered between the collars, but I don’t aspire to perfection.
And a word about linen. This was my first foray into making clothing from 100% linen. I had to get used to the way it creases, though I suspect that I’ll try something with it in the future.
