Another Simplicity 4928

This one isn’t part of my SWAP but it was stash fabric, so I feel like I got a free shirt.  This is my third version of this pattern and the first long sleeved vintage top that I actually like.   This blouse is simple to make but the ruffle is time consuming.  This time, I took a shortcut and used my serger set on a satin stitch to finish the edges of the ruffle.  This is a basic menswear flannel shirting.  I love adding feminine touches to menswear fabrics.  I see a few more of these flannel shirts in my future.

    You’re right, the feminine touch on the “masculine” fabric makes this look ever so perfect! It’s such a great way to use both plaid and work a super cozy fabric into a daytime look. You look absolutely fantastic.
