cherry blossom shirt

finished this last night, just in time for the deadline of the sewalong .. I had planned to sew another top like these, but when I saw this shirt pattern I knew it would be perfect for this cream cherry blossom fabric. It's from the magazine Patrones #245 (june edition).



It's my first shirt ever, so I learnt a lot while sewing it. The collar especially was kind of tricky, and I wasn't ready for machine sewing the button holes so I hand sew them and it took me *forever*.
