Sadie Shirt Progress: The Big Reveal

The Sadie Shirt Sew-Along over at Craftiness is not Optional ended on Friday, and I actually finished the shirt on time! I can't believe I didn't fall behind. You saw the progress I made on Days 1 and 2. Here's the final product...


I am in love with this shirt. And I am super proud of how well it turned out, being my first shirt and all. My daughter loves it, too.


She acts like such a little lady whenever she tries it on. She's already planning to wear it to preschool on Tuesday.


I didn't have any major issues on Days 3, 4 or 5. I had a little trouble with sewing the armpits of the sleeves closed, but I was able to work through it. I love sew-alongs now, too. It was great to just work a little bit each day and not feel pressured to push through and get it done as quickly as possible. Last week was a very relaxed sewing week for me (for a change), and I really enjoyed that.



I already have plans to start Sadie Shirt number two later this week (hopefully). I think my youngest needs one. I'm going to make one modification to the shirt that will change the look of it a bit. Hopefully it works out. I'll share that with you when it's done.


In the meantime, I've got a Halloween costume to finish by Thursday morning. I've also got an unbelievable yard sale find to show you later this week. Hope everyone had a great weekend. Get those costumes finished up!
