What advice would you give someone starting this project? I'm a plus size woman -- I needed to make the shirt larger to go over my hips, but the sleeves were too long and I didn't realize that until after I attached and finished the cuffs. So ... measure!

Well done! The color is amazing.

Hi Slippersmom, I am so happy to help you get over your fears of sewing clothing! Since you're a quilter, you are used to precision piecing. Making a shirt is just larger pieces of fabric being sewn together as a fabric puzzle. You're a Natural:-)) I love the color! I think you've done a fantastic job, and can't wait to see more from you. Thank you, Pam
