Not to give up …

… on dressmaking I have decided to try a shirt, similar to the one I bought.  The pattern is McCalls 5665 and I’m making the long version with 3/4 sleeves.

I will post a picture when I’ve done.

    Good luck, I started delving into dressmaking recently and it is much harder than others make it look!

      Thanks, I intend to persevere. It’s actually my shape/size that’s the problem, I used (many years ago) to be a fairly standard size so patterns in the right size just fit when I made them up and whilst I still have a shapely figure with a decent waist now I have to alter every pattern I use – or look like I’ve made myself a new sack to wear! Still I won’t be beaten 🙂
