Loft Shirt Remake!

I love shopping at the Loft. It is one of my favorite stores. I love looking through the store soaking up the fashion ideas and colors for the season. I recently bought 4 tops for $7 each on sell at the outlet store.  When I got them home I realized that the shape of the shirts were simple. I drafted a shirt template using the loft shirts (Adding a .5" seam allowance around the shirt and 1.5" at the bottom to fold up.) and remade the shirt below. Sometimes the best patterns come straight from your closet. If you have a piece of clothing that fits you really well, drafting a template from it is a good idea. 
It also justifies buying a new top. Now you've bought a top and a pattern all in one.
Happy Sewing!

I love Loft too! I will have to give drafting a top a try as there shirts usually fit me really well.
