3 Shirts from Hot Patterns 3 Graces
I have been wanting to try a Hot Patterns pattern for awhile. I really liked the fact the pattern comes with three shirts since it was a bit of a pricey pattern. However, I liked the trendy look of the shirts and I am trying to update my wardrobe.
The cowl neck variation was the easiest to make.
I made all the shirts as long sleeves because it gets very cold here.
This cross-front version was very challenging. I had to take it apart a few times to master this shirt, but in the end I figured it out. I think it would have been much easier if I had my dress form with me. However, the Hot Patterns website provides a very good video on how to assemble this shirt. I had to watch it in sections and pause it while I sewed. I consider myself quite the advanced seamstress, but I had never tried a cross-front shirt before and as I mentioned it was harder than I thought.
Finally we have the loop front which was a little difficult, but after watching the videos I was able to get it right. All of these shirts I made with fabric I ordered from Fabric.com.
