I made a shirt...

I've had this piece of gray cotton interlock in my stash for a long time. Who knows where I bought it or what it was originally intended for. One day I decided it needed to become a shirt. Dug through my patterns and found New Look S0184 (again, I've had it forever and never made it!). By the end of the day I had this awesome, comfy shirt which fits me PERFECTLY (how often does that happen???). The back is super cute...
I'm pretty sure I'll be wearing this a lot. I should probably make a few more actually! Anybody have a good source for cute cotton knits? Oh, and this was on my first quarter Finish-along list so yay! There's that!

Have a great weekend friends! Hope you get some creative time.

http://www.fabricworm.com/knitfabric.html is a good source for cute knits. Love the back on your shirt. I'll be telling my daughter about it. She makes almost all her clothes and would love this one.

I might have to look this pattern up to see if it is still available! This is so super cute and looks great on you! Imagine gnats stocks a lot of apparel fabrics, including knits.

It looks great on you - well done on using both pattern and fabric and hope you make many more. Thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2017 global FAL hosts.
