I modified this pattern quite a bit…I omitted the lining because frankly its just too warm around these parts for anything “lined”…its still in the high 90’s and it always has potential to reach the 100 degree mark….I also omitted the zipper because I didn’t have one in a color to match and I didn’t feel like shortening a longer zipper I could have used for something else…so I just left it out….I used some fabrics I had in my stash….I initially wanted the sleeve to be Black lace but I didn’t have enough lace…damn…I needed like two more inches of lace and it would have been perfect…oh well, there’s always next time….This was also a bias cut pattern (my first one) so the shirt is stretchy, which is always good! (laugh, go on, you know you want to)….
