yesss! this is my first post of something i have made! i really wanted to make a cute sundress for this summer but ended up making a shirt instead:

i hope you guys like it!

how i made it:
i used the bodice part of mccall's pattern 3563. then i added about 2.5 inches of the polka dot fabric to the bottom. the pattern called for a zipper in the back but i put one on the side instead. for the rest of the shirt i cut 2 piece of fabric 45 inches wide and 20 inches long. then i cut 4 more pieces of fabric 5 inches wide and 20 inches long to add to the 45 piece to make it big. then i sewed all of those together and gathered them and attached them to the bodice. after that i cut out my straps, 4 straps that were 1.5 inches wide and 23 inches long. i sewed those together and attached them to the top of the bodice. the last thing i did was add the pockets. i cut 2 pockets 7 inches wide and 7.5 inches long. on the pockets i also put some of the stripy fabric for a little detail. i hope that made sense. if not, i found a pattern similar to my shirt. it's mccall's 4453 and all you would have to do is add pockets!!

Yes that's really cute. I love summer tops.  where did you find that stripey fabric? It looks really lightweight... I'm obsessed with summery clothes but I can never seem to find the perfect fabric.  Anyway great job!  Smiley

Whoa, great job! You really know how to put cool colors/patterns together! It looks super comfy.  What does the back look like? I know that I say this EVERY time, but is a tutorial possible? Embarrassed

So cute!  I bet you look awesome in it.

A tutorial would be awesome... I love that style of shirt, but I couldn't make something like that up without some kind of guidance.

i actually found the fabric in my box, but i think i got it at joann's last year. it's kind of a searsucker type fabric. i think they actually have some more of that this year in the shirtings section.
