Two Tops Done!

Happy Monday!
I didn't quite finish all three as planned, but I have two completed tops to share!

The white shirt is Simplicity 8872 View C. The fabric is 100% cotton. This was very easy to put together. It's semi-fitted with 3/4 length sleeves. It has turned-back cuffs, but I can wear them down. I did not have a white shirt in my wardrobe!

This is McCalls 3340 View E. The fabric is a georgette print. Princess seams with front button closure, and a shaped hem. I've made this up in various views several times. I really like this style shirt. It was easy to put together also.

Here's an up close picture of the cuff. The pattern has cuff variations, but I like this one most of all in my previous projects of this pattern.

The third top is halfway complete, hopefully all done by tonight! Next up are new skirts and slacks.

All of the fabrics of my completed tops (and the one to come) are from Joann's clearance section. The one that I like to go to most often is not one of those Super Joann's. It has not yet been converted and I hope it never is! They seem to always have a good selection to choose from. And it's especially nice when they have those fabrics for 50% off! The employees are very nice too! They always ask what your plans are for the fabrics! LOL

Ooooohhhh Jackie, I likey these shirts! Very kewl. And as an aside save some of the shell buttons to use as replacements because they break easily when laundered.
