Denim Blues

I’m a fashion repeater. I find things I like and put it on repeat. B5526 is an oldie but goodie. I love the crap out of this pattern. It was my first button down pattern and I’ve never looked for another because this one and I have become inseparable.

I purposely bought enough denim fabric for my Rootin’ Tootin’ Dress from December as well as a long sleeve shirt. This fabric is from 2016 Black Friday from JoAnn Fabrics. In other words, Jamie’s stash!


I typically sew the version with princess seams. I preferred this to be simple. No extra seams. Clean, easy and really nice looking topstitching were my priorities. Check out that cuff!


The arms fit so well but the cuffs are a bit tight. I cannot slip this shirt on and off when the cuffs are buttons. It’s not a real big deal. The shirt turned out so well so who gives a hoot that you have to unbutton two buttons!


There’s a bit of fabric in the back but I blame the shape of the pattern. It’s meant to not have a lot of shaping so it sits on top of my butt.


I did a last minute addition and added the pocket. I originally wasn’t going to but the shirt seemed so plain. I cut a pocket and kept whiting it down until I was happy with the size.


It’s a little warm right now to wear this but inside work and a breezy day would be perfect to pull this guy out and make some good use of him.
