Finished Shirt

My blouse is completed. Here it is on curvy Claire.
  
                                                      Here is the shirt on un-curvy me .

Here is the button which is a color match but it hides the buttonhole a bit.  This is the buttonhole ,uncovered.  I like little details like this.                                                                                                                    

 
Next on the cutting table is this knit top. I'm making the short sleeve version that the model is wearing under her vest.

It looks quick and easy and hopefully it will fill a void in my wardrobe. I have no knit tops,other than big t-shirts with logos and tank tops that show every roll. I have it cut and interfaced. I'm headed to my sewing room for a bit of late night sewing.
