The dancing shot – a la Becky

Name:Black and White checked shirt
Pattern: Simplicity 4171
Fabric: Viscose/polyester blend
Fabric source: My local haberdashers
Modifications: Shortened the length (to change it from a shirt dress to a shirt) and cut it smaller in the waist and larger in the upper arm as usual. Added a security pocket in the right side seam to fit my travel pass and some loose change.
Notes: I love it! The pattern is one with three cup sizes so you don’t have to do the hard work yourself! Ignore the measuring instructions in the booklet. I came out as a C-cup – HA! I could have done with a tad more room in the busom area (I’m wearing a minimiser in the photos so it looks better) but apart from that it’s all good!
