Sewing Notes

The other crafty thing I did this weekend was start on a shirt.    I went on a buying binge of both patterns and fabrics right around Christmas (when Joann's tends to do the buck a pattern sales), and it occurred to me I should really try to use something that I'd bought.    So I'm attempting a shirt.

I'm using Simplicity 2892, and doing version D, which is the version the model is wearing on the package.   The fabric is a sheer polyester fabric I got for an insanely good price in the clearance bin at Joann's.   I normally avoid polyester, but for the price I paid, I can afford to treat this as a muslin, and if it turns out to be wearable, that'll be an added bonus.  

I'm a little nervous about the sewing - this is the sheerest fabric I've ever worked with - but if nothing else, it should be a good learning experience.
