Lucky Ducky Shirt!!
Posted on Saturday the 5th August 2017 by Gabberdashery
I am so totally quackers for my latest Minerva make I can’t even bring myself to start with an intro about the weather! So here she is is… my lucky ducky shirt:
I started this year with my make nine 2017 which laid out what I wanted to conquer this year and one of them is shirts as a few months ago I hadn’t yet made one! I was actually pretty scared of them and mainly, plackets! Aghhhh… runnnn… plackets!! I can assure you they really aren’t scary but more on that soon! Anyway I decided I would make my first shirt for my Minerva project as it’s the one clear way to actually stick to my ‘to sew’ list! I had chosen this pattern and fabric just before I was sent a package from the lovely Jen from Gingerella as part of Kittenish Behaviour’s Pattern Swap and guess what? It was a shirt! So my first shirt (with lots of head scratching was made!) There’s a video about it here if you want to see!
Anyway this is now my second shirt which meant I approached it with a lot less fear in my heart! The pattern is I AM Hermes - it’s a shirt and shirt dress pattern from a great Indie Pattern Company who I’ve wanted to try out for ages! I have to say I am 100% impressed with them. The instructions are brilliant and this shirt is drafted so well.
Huge thanks to my lovely husband for being a trooper behind the camera again and of course massive thanks to Minerva for my amazing duck shirt!!
Sew much love to you all,
