Since September’s been unseasonably warm (this week it’s “only” 75, after being 90 for most of the month) I was able to get the eighth project on my Make Nine list finished while I can still wear it.

This is the StyleArc Blaire shirt, which I made last year in oxford. This has the same mods (one piece front, no overlay) and I figured out that I needed to hem it BEFORE I sewed the side seams and apply a decorative triangle to finish the edges, like so:

I don’t look very thrilled in the modeled shot (it was the end of the day) but I’m really, really happy with how this turned out. The shirting fabric¬†was beautiful to work with and that square shape gives off strong art teacher vibes. I had a coworker ask me if it was a Madewell shirt, so I definitely got the look I was going for.
