Simplicity 2255...

Simplicity 2255.... A long tunic-style shirts with shirt-tail hem for women with several sleeve and trim variatio

Inspiration: $258, Max Mara Shirt on Nordstrom. I made this for less than $20 and about 3 hours labor... What else can I ask for? Thank you God for this skill...

Fabric: 100% cotton from Stash..
Were the instructions easy to follow: Very easy
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Here are few alterations I made to the pattern;
(a) 1" swayback adjustment
(b) Lengthened by 1"
Next time, I will scoop about 0.5" from the back neck and widen the back neck band by 0.5"
Would you sew this again?  I might sew this again in a summery color..
Would you recommend it to others? Highly recommend if you love this style
Have a great week !!!
