New shirt from Simplicity pattern 2511

Hello! This weekend I finished making my first shirt. I used the pattern pictured above and chose View 2. I have actually had the pattern for a while, but the reason that it took me so long to make was because I was procrastinating on putting in an invisible zipper. And it turned out to be no big deal, so I stressed for nothing! Did anyone else feel this way when they first started sewing?

The finished product! It’s far from perfect, but with each project I learn more and more. If you would like to see more then please visit my blog. Have a happy Monday! :)

In my past life I was a flapper. Today, I am not as exciting. I just like to read, sew, cook, obsess over Old Hollywood stars, and design things on the computer.

  • So cute! I was so freaked about invisible zippers, I took a local class on inserting zippers, and felt silly I put so much fuss into it once we got there. I should have just jumped in.

  • Thank you!

    I feel the same way. I thought to myself, "why haven't I been doing this all along?" :)

  • Thank you for sharing so much eye candy! These are really lovely.

  • Nice blouse!
    Actually I stressed less when I first began sewing… Lol, my eyes have been opened over the years about the many many ways I can mess up. And I generally have to re-do invisible zips at least once when I use them!
