Shirt sewing project

I tried to start another sewing project over the holiday break after finishing the knitting needle holder. Clothes are always so much harder, though, and I didn’t get too far.

I wanted to use one of these nice fabrics from my mom’s collection.

I was looking at either making this kind of shirt (partial placket, no-button cuffs, probably replacing collar with mandarin or faced crew collar, e.g. a henley)

or the top half of this dress, as a shirt (both patterns from Austin Creative Reuse).

I tried to do the rugby shirt, adapting the pattern to use raglan sleeves, and it did not go well. No photos, but the shoulders were poofy and the rugby shirt pattern isn’t wide enough at the bottom for me. It was a mess. I’ll have to revisit this again in the future…
