I Made A Hodgepode Diner Shirt




I had some blue fabric left over from the pants I made.
I found an old pattern and thought I'd try a shirt. I didn't have enough fabric for the collar so used some scraps I had in the stash. (My stash is so low, alas not enough to make anything).

The contrasting collar gives it an air of the 'Dinner Lady' don't you think? I call this my 'Diner' shirt and will endeavour to embroider either my name, or something a little more funky like these, on the breast under the collar.

I have yet to tackle the button holes. Too scary.
I would love to find some dinky little buttons in the shape of coffee cups or cupcakes... with sprinkles.
