Pin tucks, printable patterns, and old bed sheets

I have been straight up delinquent with my Me-Made May ’12 posts thus far.

At this point I have just about run out of me-made items, so I am quickly working on something new this week.

New Look 6104, view c (eventually with sleeves from view A).

I took advantage of Simplicity’s MMM’12 20% discount (good through May 15, use code MMM20). But rather than spending $4 on shipping (pattern only cost 3.75) I tried printing the pattern.

Unlikely to do that again. The website wasn’t working with my computer initially, and then it took the span of 4 Star Trek episodes to tape together and cut out.

The pattern itself is simple, last night I completed the front and back. I am using a bed sheet I picked up at Goodwill for less than $4. I only have to add the neck binding and the sleeves. Then Presto! A new, affordable shirt for Me-Made May.
