TSW Now Shirt



I've been on a TNT TSW trend lately, and this project is the latest. I've made the Now Shirt a couple of times before, but the sleeves always felt a bit floppy to me thanks to my bird-wrists.



You can even see a bit of that in the drawing. The Now Shirt is the one on the right. So this time, I tapered the lower sleeve to refine the fit. I also lengthened the body of the shirt 2". The last one was wearable but the longer length is more versatile.

I used a cotton/rayon blend that I bought from Marcy Tilton at the 2009 ASG Conference in Albuquerque. Practically new, considering the size of my stash!

It's a little rumpled, not as much as it looks in the picture but a bit.  Of course, my iron decided to spit something on the front of the shirt when I was touching it up for pictures, so I had to launder it...and I didn't want to risk pressing it before taking a picture.

What a great shirt, especially in the longer length. I think I must buy this pattern. I just finished making my 3rd Zona, but I think I like the Now even better. The collar is very attractive. Thanks for sharing.

The fabric is so pretty. That's one pattern I don't have----yet.

Beautiful blouse(shirt). Love that fabric, and it probably feels like butter.
