Salme Buttonless Shirt #149

Salme Buttonless Shirt
I am always on the lookout for new fun patterns that are simple and easy to make. This pattern is from Salme, and it is called the Buttonless Shirt, Pattern #149. This pattern is a great sleeveless shirt with a super cute collar.

After printing the template and taping it together. I realized that the bust dart and the hem were too low for my petite frame. The center opening needed to be stitched up a little higher when piecing the two front panels together. 
Sewing in Yellow
After making those adjustments and adding the seam allowance, I had the correct size and set to work. I adore the collar, as you can see in the picture above, you do need to use interfacing to help create a sturdy collar. I love that there are no buttons, zippers or even elastic notions in this pattern. All you need is fabric and thread. You can make this a shirt or dress with a belt. I love that I can use my favorite cotton fabrics to create this cute shirt/ dress pattern. You could use other materials, but cotton is my favorite.

After making this pattern, I realized you can wear it in many different ways; shirttail out, shirt out with a belt or tucked in. Can't wait to make more!
