Textiles Used: navy and fuscia heart shirting from
Sizing: great – according to measurements  

The Good:  I love the way that the shirt comes together.  It’s a very modern fit of fitted at the top and more flowy at the bottom.  I also love how the hemline dips a bit lower in the back than in the front.
The Bad: nothing.
Changes Made:  I lowered the neckline by about an inch.  I also lengthened the sleeves a bit and took in about 1/2 inch of fullness in the sides.
Things I would change next time?  I would love to add a gathered sleeve that goes to the elbow.  Maybe try it in a silk blend.
Conclusion: Great pattern.  Perfect for my mom uniform of an easy to wear top and skinny jeans.  I think this will get a lot of wear.  Can’t wait to make it up a few more times.
