Anyways, our colors were red and gray. I wanted someone in solid red - I bought a shirt for my daughter, but I didn't love it. So I decided to sew one up for her. It wasn't quite what I had in mind, but pretty close - I was limited to the patterns that were on sale that day.
Anyways, I impressed myself with the construction. It went together easily and I did it all on my own (sometimes I have to call my mom to interpret patterns for me!). I like how the sleeves bell out and the vintagey feel of the yoke neckline. It took an hour at most, start to finish and was fun to make. I only used a yard of fabric, so the whole thing cost about $3 (it was cheap walmart fabric, except for the belt houndstooth which was a small cut, on sale at Joanns).
I should really do things like this more often!
