It's all in the details.

It's all in the details, baby, as my friend Nicole always says.  

As soon as I finished my first Gallery Tunic I started plotting my next one.  I wanted to change a few things up to give it a little different look as it would be my third gingham shirt in my closet, one RTW and the other I made.

So I decided on a larger scale for the body with a smaller gingham and a polka dot thrown in the mix.

Abby is getting better with the camera, though I am still nervous she will drop it- hence the awkward face, I was trying to give her instructions.

At first I wanted to go small gingham collar with polka dot cuffs, but on flickr Masha suggested the collar and cuffs be the same.  I liked that idea better and knowing the placket is more of a hidden or less noticeable detail, I used the polka dot there.

I used a solid black for the under collar, another hidden detail, but I like knowing it's there.


  1. Brittney, you look fantastic! And the details!!! I love it. You hit this one out of the freaking ballfield, lady.

  2. Ack, love it, you look AMAZEBALLS Baby-Baby.
    Love the top, you look radiant and Ab's took some great photos.

  3. It turned out so cute! I love it with the pedal pushers and the coral shoes - very 60s chic :)

  4. I love how this turned out. It totally works.
    I am steadily working my way through my patterns and drawing a short list of staples to sew up and you are not helping! I thought I had it covered but now I really need this pattern.

  5. It's fantastic! Well done, and it really looks good on you.

  6. Love this! Great job on the details.

  7. That is the cutest shirt! It turned out so good!
