Blueberry Top

Today I finaly finished what was supposed to be a quick little weekend project. It took me about a month because of school and other things.It is Simplicity 2501. I made it before in green. Surprisingly the second time around came with a lot of obstacles. I think it looks really cool and modern with my sequin shorts. I love the shorts and I'm pretty sure this blog will turn into an I love sequin shorts blog over the summer.Paired with the matching dress it creates a subtle New Look feeling that I like.My mom really likes the shirt and wants one for herself.
There were some good things about this project: my covered buttons turned out so well,I got to use my cool labels,my sleeves turned out so well.Like I said it also gave me a bit of trouble. The waistband turned out weird so I hemmed it instead of doing it the way the pattern said to. My buttonholes were too small so they are decorative. I fixed it by closing it with hooks and eyes. I think I need to add one more to the middle because when I sit or slouch it gaps a bit.
Overall, I'm happy with the way it turned out even though it took longer than expected.
In other news I got a twitter. The link is in the about me section.
