Here I am in my latest creation:
This is the second shirt I’ve made using this pattern (McCall’s 4922) and I think it might be my new favorite shirt pattern. For a long time I avoided princess seams because I was a afraid they would emphasize my worst physical characteristics. It does make me look rather matronly I think but that is what I am. It’s not my vision of what I would like to look like in a princess style shirt but it actually doesn’t look as bad as I had once feared.
I think the colors will look appropriate throughout the fall/winter/early spring season. They look just slightly off in the picture. The blue is actually a little brighter and is more of a turquoise color and it doesn’t show very well in the picture but there are thin lines of a darker turquoise.
