DIY Side Split Shirt using Simplicity 1366 / S055

Good evening darlings! 

I wanted to share with you a quick project I completed over the weekend to get the old juices running again. I had plans on making 2 versions on this shirt.  The most important of which is the top below with a half sleeve.  

Yes, Yes, I admit.  I am transitioning into fall.  I think I got into a slump lately because I wasn't into sewing any more dresses..... Either that or my inner tomboy is coming out :).

I have always been a jean type of girl.  Therefore, I am finding myself trying different options for shirts.  This shirt is rather popular.  I choose to wear mines with a tie in the front to break up the mediocrity.  As I am in no shape or form wanting to walk out my house and instantly look like the next person lol!

The fabric I used is a little bit thicker than lining (purchased to use as lining) and has a matt silk finish to it.  I've had it so long, I don't recall what it is, sorry!

I paired this shirt with a pair of lightly distressed AG Goldschmied Jeans which is ironically one of my favorites right now.  My shoes are from www.cherrybombatlanta.com one of my favorite boutiques from my Atlanta days. 

To accomplish this look, I simply measured the length of my shirt from the top of my shoulder to right below my knees which was 45 inches.  I constructed the shirt a per the pattern and stopped my side seam 4 inches from the armpit.  I also made an optional sash, I not quite sure which way I like better.

Hope you like!
