Simplicity Pattern Review 8856

 I made it!  I took the time to make this cute Boho Style shirt/dress! AND.... I Vlogged about it too! Yes it was not as easy as the others but I really love the results! Click here to see the full video. I made with rayon fabric. I think its a must have in any women’s wardrobe! This tunic shirt goes great with leggings and I love the pockets! Its loose fitting and very comfortable. I would say the pattern is more for an intermediate sewer. I don’t think it was an easy shirt to sew. The pattern involves gathering fabric, lots of pinning and sewing on a pocket, sewing on the lining and using stabilizer. I also attached a button to the back. The pattern gives detailed instructions on how to sew the shirt. Just read slow and you will have no problem making this! I’m here to inspire you to make beautiful handmade things and I would love to be part of your sewing journey!
