Simplicity 2339 Finished

TaDa!!  I like this shirt, it's cute, and cool, and of course since I started cutting to finish, the temperatures have dropped outside.  No project is complete without some mischief.... and for this shirt...

It was the buttonholer that left me a little reminder that it's been working too hard and needs to be cleaned.  It left me a little smudgy present, so this puppy will be cleaned today.

The summer trench is still sitting on my cutting table, uncut of course, I'm not excited about cutting it out, with my favorite scissors out of commission.  So I need to make a decision on what project to do next, especially since St. Patrick's Day is this week, and I have some lovely silk with pale green shamrocks embroidered on it.  It had been the dress I wore to my brother's wedding, and I have never been able to part with it, I just love it!!

I don't have a lot of this fabric, so it will no doubt be a pieced project.  Or I could just make another shirt!!

Gotta love the fabric with Shamrocks. It would be so appropriate for this week:) The blouse looks great!

Thank you!! I think I like the seersucker, it feels cushioned when I wear it, and it's not clingy so it is very cool.

That shamrock fabric is my favorite!! The dress shows me at one point I had a 27" waist, sigh, those were the days.
