Has it ever happened to you that you cut the same pattern piece twice, I mean without flipping it over for the right or left side? Of course you can just make a second shirt with the same pattern. Or you can use your single “useless” piece and mix it with a different fabric to make it a bit more interesting.
The shirt Karla wears in the first pictures is a result of a mistake. It was the first of several shirts I made in this style, the ones I made after this were pattern-mixed on purpose.
I do have a lot of fabric, but people who follow my blog will have seen some of the fabrics used for several garments. I thought this was just nice to have a bit of variation. Karla seems to think so, too.
The second fabric already looks like this. I would have liked the shoulder triangles to end below the boobs, but they are not big enough. And this way the brightest triangle ends just at the waist, so I am happy with it.
