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! 🙂

Hello everyone! I am new to the blog and new to sewing as well. My husband got me a sewing machine around a year and a half ago and now I’m hooked. After reading this blog it makes me want to sew and make beautiful clothes like all of you.

Can anyone recommend any beginner sewing blogs for me to follow? Or any fun blogs in general, I need some friends on here 🙂
