The Shirt: I like this shirt, but not necessarily with this skirt. I think it's great as a knock-around shirt worn with jeans. But, it might be too slouchy to work with the a skirt, even one as casual as this one. Luckily, I have a RTW tee shirt that is more fitted and that I can wear with the skirt. The shirt was very easy to sew; even with the eighteen buttons. It can be sewn in an evening. The sleeves are a little long and are probably intended to be worn pushed up. I do intend to make this shirt again.
