Shades of Gray

McCalls 5522, grey with white polka dots. Which is correct, gray or grey, I'll have to look that up.

While working on this shirt I remembered why I don't often make them, it took two entire weekends for 1 shirt, that's too much of a commitment but I'm very happy with the final result.

I used french seams which came out great.

I don't like doing continuous laps but these came out nice. I think my next project will be something quick and easy. I have some purple fleece for a jacket but today it's in the 80's and I just can't bring myself to cut it out. I'll be happy when Fall finally gets here and stays.

I hope everyone had a great weekend.
