sewing for me [simplicity 2255]

Another fun top for myself.  This one was certainly more of a challenge.  I've never sewn button holes before so this pattern forced me to learn.  After a few tries, I figured it out with my machine.  The fabric is from JoAnns and is a soft cotton with a little bit of stretch. 

I used Simplicity pattern 2255.  The directions were nice and clear and I loved learning how to make a button down shirt.

According to the measurements, I cut a size 18.  If I make one again (which I probably will in the fall), I would cut a size smaller in the sleeves and top area and then angle it out to an 18 at the hips.

I love all the fun details of this shirt.
