I found an adorable shirt tutorial over at Sew Mama Sew called a Spring Ruffle Top. It was created by Rae of Made by Rae. I highly recommend both sites - tons of awesome tips, patterns, tutorials and overall great ideas!!!
I really want to start making more clothes for myself. I can never find exactly what I'm looking for in the store. I have not made any tops for myself, mostly skirts. I saw this shirt and loved it!! So I just went for it!
I decided to do it all in one fabric and omit the pockets. The directions were perfect down to the detail. I am a new sewer and followed each step with no problems. I also did NOT rush and try to finish this in one night. It took two nights and I love the results.
I will definitely try this tutorial again!! The next time, I think I will try two different fabrics and maybe omit the ruffle sleeves. Also, I would make the width (especially) towards the bottom a little more narrow (less maternity-like).
