Another vintage pattern, modern fabric shirt. The last button is a little wonky but overall I'm very pleased with how it came out. There are no hearts per se but the fabric colors and the candy pattern scream Valentine's Day to me.
The word "vintage" is in quotation marks because I'm pretty sure that there weren't any ladies' skull shirts around back in the 50's. But there should have been! The pattern I made this from is authentically 50's. The fabric, not so much.
Perhaps this has been mentioned before but I didn't see anything posted. I just discovered a store, which on retrospect I should have thought of ages ago. There's a bookstore/supply store right next to FIT which has a great general selection of crafting items and professional books. I bought a design book which I guess is a class textbook but they have a whole room of pattern making materials, thread, and assorted notions. Granted Joanns has more but as we all know that there isn't one here, I found this place to be very convenient. I don't know the name but it's located on 27th and 8th.
Unless your SO is Tim Gunn or Marc Jacobs, I wouldn't let his critique bother you. Things might start out a little rough but it won't take years to get it just right. Be proud that you made your first of many pieces of clothing, not everyone can learn how to sew.
