Pinstripe Shirt

This material was a devil to work with. Of course, it didn’t help that I didn’t line up my stripes correctly (I’ve never worked with stripes before). So the darts look funny because the stripes aren’t even on both sides. I also lengthened this about two inches on the pattern because I knew it would be too short for me to tuck in to pants and have it stay put. I feel pretty meh about this, because I should have picked a better fabric to work with. For now, I’m saying “no” to slippery fabrics until I get some more confidence in my sewing.

    You’re right, I’m just nitpicking. Thanks for the feedback!
