After seeing this shirt, my daughter told me that it wasn't really a good idea to wear short sleeves in the fall and winter. I explained that I made it to be worn under a cardigan. Then she said she thought the color was really pretty. So, I think everything's going to be okay now.
Last fall she had a long-sleeve T-shirt to wear under a hoodie and she hardly ever wore it because it was so frustating for her when she was getting dressing. And after the long sleeves that were too short, short sleeves looked good to me!
The fabric is left over from a top I made for myself a couple of years ago. It's an interlock knit and looks more purple in real life. The pattern is Kwik Sew 2918, modified to have a gathered and bound neck.
That pile on my desk is getting smaller....
