jeans post i'm not going into super detail, just basically skimming over how to make a shirt.
i got the pattern by actually ordering a "western" shirt pattern from simplicity. of course, because i'm much smaller than most common clothes sizes i had to take the pattern in a lot (even from its smallest size), but eventually i got it right. i traced the onion-skin pattern onto poster board which makes them less fragile and easier to handle. i still keep the directions close at hand and refer to them a lot. thank god ethan and i wear the same size shirt--that way i don't have to switch between 2 sizes all the time!
like i said, i've got a couple more to make that have slight variations, so i'll just be showing how i stray from this model, but this is the basic shirt.
