Lately, I've been obsessing big time over gingham! I've dedicated a board on Pinterest entirely to it.
One of the easiest inspired garments to create is a shirt. Since this is a printed shirt, I decided to use a button front shirt pattern -- Vogue 8772, that was tailored and didn't have any pockets. Pockets, gingham and my boobs? That equals a lot going on! So I passed on shirt pockets.
The shirt was pretty straight forward -- that is if you've previously made a shirt before. If you haven't, this is a good one to learn on. It has all of the components of a button front shirt and would be a great one to practice on.
I love that this shirt has horizontal and vertical darts in the front and vertical darts in the back. This mean you should get a really good fit without a lot of nipping and tucking. I did however have to add an inch to the waist for that tiny bit of additional length.
And I bought my gingham fabric during one of the sales that Hancock had a few weeks ago.
