Oh man, I have a whole folder on my computer with saved pictures of things I want to remake from Anthropologie.  That store is amazing.

You did a good job!  I think it would look good with and without the darts.  The darts look good, though. 

Don't do buttons Smiley

Wow, that's really cute. Great job! This really makes me want to finally give in and spend the money for a sewing machine that doesn't have a 90% chance of catching fire when I turn it on.

If you want it to look a whole lot more like the first shirt, run two more slight darts on each side of the existing ones. This would look less odd and more intended by design.

As for buttons, I wouldn't add just buttons. If you have another strip of the same fabric, run about 3/4 of an inch of it straight down the middle right on top of existing fabric. Then add buttons to that. If you don't have fabric, I guess running two darts spaced 3/4 of an inch would have almost the same effect, then add buttons in between.

ditto to all of the above, it looks so good that you wouldnt want to add the buttons and then regret it later if they dont look as good, keep it the way it is!

This looks great! I wouldn't add buttons either, or remove the darts.

It looks awesome!

If you really want to add some more to the shirt... Add a couple more darts and it'll look almost like a cool altered tuxedo shirt.

But personally, I think it looks great.

I think it is great to capture the "feel" of a piece of clothing you love rather than to make an exact copy...besides maybe money, making it our own is a reason we sew, right?

I think you did a nice job of capturing the feel...the ruffle and the neckline and the darts all do that...I agree that a bit more polish on your darts (placement and length) next time would be good, but I certainly would not re-do them or add buttons...

cute and fresh looking for spring and beyond!

Really nice job. I think being in tee shirt material you can dress it up or down. Good layering piece.

i think no buttons, it might make it too busy
