simple diy pleated shoulder shirt

Hey y’all!  I’m so sad that this will be my last post here for a while!  I’m gonna miss y’all! I hope you’ll stop by at Alida Makes from time to time to say hi!
Today I’m going to show you a really pretty shoulder detail that is super easy to do.


This simple shirt is jazzed up by some shoulder pleats and a curvy front hem.  
For more info on the pattern I used for this shirt, go HERE.
Now for the sewing! You will have to make a couple of simple alterations to get this look. The first is to add a curve to the bottom of the front shirt pattern as shown.  




Then just sew together as you normally would!  Pretty easy huh?  
And just look how pretty it turned out! It even looks good while I’m sneezing :-)
Thanks for having me as a contributor Brittany, it’s been a blast!
