When Crystal asked for ITS-addicted sewists, I applied. Kennis generously offered us a pattern of our choice and I picked the Bonn shirt. My wardrobe is really poor in me-made shirts.

Bonn, the perfect shirt
In a classroom, Bonn would be that pupil, you know, the one who is shy but friendly, who knows all the answers, but isn’t bossy. This is Bonn. You can sew Bonns for the year-round look since it offers 4 sleeve options: long, short, 3/4, and 3/4 with a ruffle.
Because fall is around the corner, I chose to sew the long-sleeve version out of this lovely embroidered cotton coupon I got on Les Coupons de Saint-Pierre website. This fabric was nicely waiting to be cut into the nicest shirt I ever made for myself.
I did my usual shortening of shoulder seams and torso length. I also cut a size 6 bust/waist blended to a size 8 hips. I still need to fiddle a bit more with my sway-back, but…
First time I feel great in a shirt I made. It’s not boxy, it shows the right amount of cleavage, and it’s fitted as I like.
Do not forget to check on the other bloggers’ great mades. You will see the beautiful garments they sewed.
And the best for the end…a giveaway!! With amazing sponsors!
