… not quite.
I will probably tuck *this* version of the shirt in very rarely, as corduroy functions as a jacket hereabouts. So here’s a couple of pictures, with some notes on style/fit.
This first picture, with shirt unbuttoned and sleeves rolled up – that’s how this shirt will be worn 90% of the time. Might button a few buttons sometimes when it’s chilly.
I *could* button it all the way up… but if I do, I’d better tuck it (or belt it – see last post with the shirt belted) because if I don’t, my torso eats my entire body. Don’t believe me?
(PS note that even open, over a contrasting colored top/bottom, the shirt isn’t nearly as lengthening/slimming as it is over a same colored top/bottom. Also, it reads as much more casual. The brown buttons also casual things up, brown is a casual color for me).
I wanted to show you how the shirt fits – I don’t have it buttoned in this pic, but you can see how nicely it’s skimming over my back and curves – very slimming, skimming. Skim = slim!
I’m not totally satisfied with the way the sleeve head fits, but that’s another bit of wiggling to do with the pattern. Maybe next time ’round. It looks good ‘nough for a shirt I’ll “rough it” in. (This is camping-wear for me).
And then this last pic is the Hearthie in her native habitat… 😀 This is how I usually sit to read. I’m short! I don’t find the “normal” positions of sitting comfortable at all. Especially nice with a heavy book, because you can use the couch as a bookrest.
And, okay – if you snuck in my house this winter, you’d probably see this shirt in action just like this!
