I wanted a more 50s style than the Milly shirt so pulled out Butterick 9405. I've already made this pattern twice so it went together pretty quickly. I made view D.
What on earth is that woman at the front doing?
I did darts at the front instead of tucks but that's the only change I made. I did french seams where I could because I am obsessed with them.
I actually finished this a little while ago but the print made it a total nightmare to get an okay picture of it. I tried three times to take photos but the bright white background of the fabric made all the pictures blurry.
I used some vintage buttons that I love but haven't been able to use until now because there are only three of them. It closes with a snap at the top because there's not enough room for a button.
So my fabric + notions cost less than $10 vs the $300 Milly version. I think I win.
*Incidentally, I don't like sailing or going on boats because I get seasick. My face turns green and I think I'm going to die.
