If you are a more experienced seamstress, you will find plenty of satisfaction in whipping out one or two of these shirts in a cinch. The beauty of this pattern is that you can make one using the plaid fabric included in this kit, and then you can make more in other prints – or even solid colors, if you are in need of some classic basics.
