When I looked through my closet for my best fitting shirt I found one I made, which happened to be Simplicity 6613. This is fitted. For an everyday shirt I like simplicity 7330.
When looking at their chart I fall between a XS and S on the normal fit chart. For the slim fit chart it is more like a large. I would hate to wear one of their slim-fit shirts. Painted-on is what it should be called!
I decided to make the Simplicity 6613 pattern in small. I figured why try to draw a new one when this one does nicely? So, not to self draft is the answer. At least for now.
My only adjustments to the pattern are making it two inches longer, making the collar smaller, and adjusting the button placement. I also did a rolled hem.
Using my White Sewmaster to make impeccable straight stitches, I made a short-sleeve shirt with some striped material from my stash.

Now that this project is finished, I am starting something really different for me. It happens to be a multicolored shacket.
Thanks for stopping.
