For my Apparel Construction class, we had to make a button-down shirt (with a collar & cuffs) for our final project. We had to use a pattern, so I honestly just chose the cheapest one at Wal-Mart (some New Look pattern, can't recall the number). I wish I had chosen one with a traditional neckline now, instead of a V, but ah, well. I'll wear this regardless. Anyway, it was pretty intense to make. I'd never done anything with a collar & neckband before, so doing that was difficult--but the finished product is so awesome! I love clean finishes. So much.




It has flat-felled seams everywhere but the arms, slipstitched cuffs, and 6 darts throughout. (Psst. I got an A on it! Cheesy)







I also made my skirt, but that's small beans. Smiley That was out of some quilting cotton someone gave me, just a simple high waisted thing with inset pockets.

What do you think? Thanks for looking!

This is absolutely gorgeous! It looks so professional and I love the way you've styled it. The colors pop so well together, especially against all the snow. (Which I'm jealous of too since it's cold here but no snow this winter so far)

Thank you so much!! I hadn't found a way to wear it til now, sometimes those surprising color combos just work. Haha, you can have some of our snow--it just keeps coming!
