new peasant top recently made from NEWLOOK 6891, though not seen in the photo at the top, is underneath the chambray shirt. Funny, I'd even titled that post 'Getting ready for summer'. Sure doesn't feel like summertime today.
My Chaps camp chambray shirt was purchased from one of my favorite local department stores, Kohl's, last year or so. I bought a medium and have always thought it fit a little 'bulky' through the back. Now that I am sewing my own clothes, I can see I probably bought too big of a size, as it's drooping off my shoulders some, has too much ease on the sides, which makes for a bulky feeling back. But then again, maybe next time I should make my own chambray shirt and fit it to my body's needs.
