the sweetest plaid you ever did see

Built by Wendy button-down shirt pattern…….in progress.

If Rainbow Brite was in her mid 20s to early 30s today and wore a plaid print, this would so be her fabric of choice. Hands. Down.

Was this my intention going in? No. Am I ashamed though? Nah.

I added in some chambray accents in the back, collar stand, inner button flap, and it will be present on the cuff too. I’m so close yet so far from being finished. I am curious for these results because my love wanes and grows for this piece the longer I work on it. So there’s that.

Also a quick side-note I forgot to mention a post or two earlier – I got featured in DIY Summer Style Ideas article for my diy shorts tutorial by the nice folks at Earth911! Mine was 1 of 17 nifty DIY ideas mentioned for your summer wardrobe, so you should definitely check it out!
