Creative process....

This is my progress on a shirt I wanted to make.  It was something I design on paper and wanted to know if I had it in me to make it happen.  Well so far it's been okay.  I haven't struggle as much with it as I usually do with the other projects. But looking at the pictures I see there are adjustments to be made.
So here she is in the making.

There are a few things to straighten out as far as the pleats.  It looks awkward on the hanger it only sit straight when I wear the top.  I wonder though is it ever okay to make pleats on knit fabrics?  or Is that a major no?
Anyway, I will be soon done with this shirt.  I am sure I will have allot to say after a wear or two.  I look forward to that.  In the meantime I am also keeping myself busy with a muslin version of a dress I am making for fall and a top for the summer. 
Hopefully if everything does work out I will have allot more pics and post to share.
Be Blessed,

Selfies and body double dressforms tell the real story, don't they? I like the pleats but they are hard to do on knits because of the way knits drape. I would stitch them down and then make a center back seam. The shirt might hang better. Your creativity is good--I like that design.
