I love this cheery red fabric and I had originally intended it for Greta, but then decided to use it for myself! I wanted something casual. I like the look of shirts where the back is longer than the front, plus with all the bending and picking up of children I do, it adds to my modesty. I altered a simplicity 2246 pattern, which I most recently used for it's intended shirt dress. I changed the neckline and the sleeves. And overall, it turned out well. It definitely has it's flaws, but it's been a long time since I've done any sort of alterations and I don't think I've ever changed anything as much as I did this. So whether or not it's perfect is not a point of concern. I tried something new and succeeded well enough and that's success enough for me! I'm dying for a bodyform so that I can manipulate more patterns!
