haha! patterns suck.
it's not so much the patterns, more the directions
this is really cute- i like that you put a waistband in (they make EVERYTHING more flattering)
did you just use bias tape for the tie?
the waist band as actually put in because of an accident. when i hacked the shirt up i realized it'd be a little short for my liking so adding the waist band i figured would add some length, and actually did make it a lot more flattering!
for the tie i used the bottom hemmed end of a black t-shirt
