Make It, Wear It!

I made this new Shirt for myself!  It was not going to be a shirt at all. Originally, it was a dress but I did not like the length and the print was over the top as a dress. I talked myself out of it. Anyway, I was asked, "Where did I get the pattern?" It is truly a Sew Spoiled Twist on the Sew Liberated School House Tunic without sleeves and with pockets on the side seams.  I added a pink tie but I cut that off too because it looked like an ascot. Not the look I was going for. Sewn down it looks great as a collar.
I added it to Sew Mama Sew's flickr group, Make it, Wear it! I love the photo pool filled with beautiful one of a kind women's clothing. I have spent many an hour drooling on my computer looking at all of the fabulous clothes handmade by women all around the world!
Make it, Wear it!

Cute top! I've got to get the School House Tunic pattern. I keep seeing so many made that are too cute. I'll admit the pattern cover itself isn't inspiring to me.

Super cute variation on the School House Tunic! I bought this pattern after seeing all of your cute versions. It was really easy to make!
