lovely collection of shirts! Thanks for the idea of making tie to hold the sleeve up when rolled, very nice touch.

This looks like a wonderful basic hot weather shirt. I have made the men's version many times, but hadn't thought of trying this one until I saw your pics. I like all your fabric choices, esp. the lemons.

What great shirts! I love all of them! Thanks for the review -- I've probably got to have this pattern!

I've been hoping for a review on this one. I have made the men's version with great success. Now I need to make one for myself.

Hmm, this might be fun to get for the machine instructions! Great lemon top; too cute.

Great shirts Nikki. These are exactly what I need to be sewing, I just never seem to get to it. I love your fabrics - the lemons are very timely with yellow being so in style right now.

Love the car fabric Nikki, and can't believe you had the patience to sew one after the other! They look great.

Love your shirts Nikki. I got a chuckle (or was it a snort?) when I read that particular rolled sleeve technique was back in fashion. I have a few in my closet from the 80's (or is the 70's) that I held onto. Glad to know that I can wear them again!

Great shirts!! I really need to make some too. I love how you "time" your sewing -- 2.5 CDs. LOL!

Thanks everyone! I have to confess that I bought the lemon fabric (which IKEA was discontinuing) for my kitchen curtains, and had a bit left over. My shirt matches both the curtains and the coordinating oven mitts!
