Hmm, that's about all I can say for it...it IS, in fact, a shirt. I think I've wandered outside my style. This is Vogue 8323, which was made up fabulously by KID MD, but which somehow turned out almost grandmotherly on moi. Watch out for those double-wide hips!
Maybe it's the fabric-pattern combo. This is a cotton knit I loved from Amanda at Kitschy Coo, but I'm afraid I've combined it with the wrong pattern. (You can't imagine the guilt I'm suffering that I squandered a FOREIGN fabric on the wrong style.) Can you even see the princess seams on front and back?
Back to the pattern - it was so easy and fast, but this plethora of fabric at the neck is universal among the 47 sewists who reviewed it. KID succeeded in fixing the problem as mentioned on her blog, but I left out that step, unfortunately.
One sewist wore it with a belt, which looked quite smart and professional, but that is just not my style. (Sorry for the flash.)
Of course, it looks baggy without the belt. Maybe I should tighten up the side seams.
Now should I try it with a solid to accent the style? Or I may try another view with a regular collar and not this criss-cross wrap style, which I've folded down in most of the pictures. I'm also not used to this length, but I think it's in right now, and I wouldn't go shorter unless I tuck it in.
Well, I'm still wearing scrubs every day to work since sewing my own wardrobe is not going well. I can't wait for cold weather to get here so I can break out the 4 pairs of corduroys I bought last year and wore with my boots every day!
