Three Shiny Shirts Go to a Gala

January 30, 2016

My sisters and I threw ourselves a new years gala this year (last year? for the 2015 to 2016 transition. It’s a very confusing time of year) and the theme was SHINY. So I dropped everything (that I was sewing) and made us each a new shiny party shirt. I didn’t get many pictures of Pedro or &andra’s shirts (Our older sister. Not her real name, as you might have guessed) so this review will be pretty quick. I’ll look at my shirt more later.

Please excuse the construction, &andra’s living room was in the process of being renovated by Mr. Brother-In-Law

Pedro’s Shiny Red Shirt: Burda #141 12/2014 in size 48

This such a great pattern. It fits Pedro really well and it’s just so cool. I hope Burda makes it in the smaller size range someday. I used a red poly satin and used my sweet rolled hem presser foot to do the flounce hems.

&andra’s Shiny Bamboo Shirt: New Look 6225 View A in size 16

I don’t sew for &andra very often so I was pretty nervous about the fit, but in the end the shirt fits very well. I narrowed the sleeve and didn’t gather it at the hem, by request. The brocade fabric was a huge pain in the butt though, snagging on everything and surprisingly shifty.

Everyone was happy with their outfits and the gala was tons of fun. Plenty of alcohols were consumed.

    Shiny shirts are the reason we celebrate NYE 🙂 OK, maybe the champy too.
