newest modest shirt design

my newest modest shirt design. i did the pattern on tuesday and cut it out in the fabric and sewed it last night. (only took me 15 minutes to sew it ... LOVE LOVE LOVE my new serger!) it still needs tweaking ... i think gathers under the bust where the empire seam is would look much more flattering. but i LOVE the idea. one side has a cowl neck where the other side has a high neckline (but it's totally reversible ... you could wear the cowl in the front or the back!) i also think i want to make the cowl more pronounced. is it cute enough to worry about trying to fix the pattern, or should i move on to another design??

i think it looks cute on my bump though ... and can you see my belly button just wanting to pop out??

hmmm...

you know i'm your biggest fan...but not of this one. i think it's the sleeves. they are a little bit funky. maybe if the cowl was a little more pronounced?

but, it does look cute on the bump!

Though I'm not a huge fan of the shirt, you sure look cute in it!

Sorry, but it kinda looks like a hospital gown cut off at the waist...maybe that's the print but...I don't know...You know I love you!! So more pronounced cowl: yes. different material: yes.

I think it's super cute and so is your bump . . . I think it's just the fabric that made it look hospital gowney. If it were black or something it would look very different. And the funky sleeves are part of what I like about it.

ps Do I need to use heavy weight fabric for a bag? I was picking out fabric but the one i like best is lightweight, like quilt fabric.
