I’ve just returned from a week-long trip to fantastic week-long trip in Maui. The reason for the trip was for a family wedding (more on that later!) but Bee and our guys had a lot of time to explore Maui, eat good food and relax.

I also had some time to document recently-completed sewing projects; Nathan obligingly took pictures of me on an early morning beach walk near where we stayed in Kihei.
I used the same pattern as my flannel shirt, McCall’s 6436. I used a cotton voile, which is probably closer to the silky fabric the pattern recommends. It was SO EASY to work with, like paper. It did exactly what I wanted it to.

Like before, I skipped the back darts. I also raised the hem of the side seams but left the front and back long, since the shirt looked a bit billowy.

There’s something so life-affirming about such a vibrant shade, don’t you think?
