Built by Wendy Bandwagon - Simplicity 3835

Has it been that long! Geez! Life has been busy - the Little Guy had a rocking 3rd B-day party, my daughter graduated from Pre-K, my mom and in-laws visited, and we made a trip to TN.

On with the post, I finally made this super simple Built by Wendy shirt that has been made like a million times. I love how easy this shirt is to make and I think it's cute. If you've read the reviews, you know there are fitting issues and of course I didn't modify for these (ie a little snug in the arm area and the neckline is a little high). Next time I'll make it a little roomier in the arms and maybe scoop out the neckline a little. An old co-worker of mine use to sew like crazy but now only sews home dec stuff. She gave me a few items from her apparel fabric stash back in 2006 and this was one of the pieces. I will make one of the dresses but no time soon:) I am trying to get the summer wardrobe in order.

Adorable, and happy Belated Bday! Don't be intimidated. Just take your time and grab a piece of tracing paper, some pattern paper and start tracing. Some people trace right onto the fabric, but I find it better to have separate pattern pieces and go from there. Good luck!

Hi I love this pattern and I recently bought it, but I'm having some problems attaching the arms to the top, any tips on how you did it?
