Who Needs Patterns?

I had a shirt I REALLY REALLY liked that got tye-dye on it.  I have loved this shirt for at least 5 years.  And it's a great shirt for being pregnant because it's long and roomy.  And it has pockets.  I washed it out as soon as I got home but the dye didn't come out.  So I took it apart and made a prototype of it.  I don't love my fabric choices, but I just wanted to see if I could actually do it, and maybe in the future I will make another one with cuter fabric.  I just used fabric I already had.

The best part about this project is it gave me a little sewing confidence.  It took me a whole day with breaks and errands in between, but I didn't give up and I didn't get frustrated or take shortcuts.  My Mom teases me that I don't buy patterns when I want to make something, I follow a tutorial online, but then I don't have to plan ahead or buy anything, and especially in this case, it's something I know I like and I like the way it fits.
