Life with an autistic son, two daughters, a husband, and a full time job can get pretty hectic! Making things helps me maintain SANITY.

I made another Beatrix top this week. The fabric I chose is a light weight yarn dyed plaid - is it a gingham? It has a very soft feel and great drape. It was on a shelf of assorted out-of-season fabrics. When I saw it a light bulb went off in my head.
I made view A again, but I added length to the sleeve. I was torn between adding a button cuff (like the Oliver and S Gallery tunic) or making an elastic cuff. I opted for the elastic cuff because I like being able to push my sleeves up and down with a minimum of fuss.
I love this shirt. This morning was cool in my area and so I kept it on for quite a while! This will definitely be in heavy rotation this fall!
