Another thing off the list!¬†Ever since I did the Built By Wendy Simplicity 3835 the first time, I’d been wanting to try it again with a couple of Chris’ old button down shirts. While I love the butterfly version, it’s just not practical for nursing the baby. The buttons certainly takes care of that problem.

There were lots of stumbling blocks this time around, and I wondered if I wouldn’t just end up with shredded men’s shirt at the end. First, the sleeves were really too small, then the hem didn’t line up on the sides, and then I couldn’t decide how to anchor the elastic in the neckline (I ended up just sewing it along each side of the placket). But once again, this awesome pattern produces wearable results without a whole lot of fuss!
