Make A Garment A Month Challenge - Burdastyle Paneled Shirt

I have to draw a new line of pattern because the minimum size from the original pattern is 36, I followed these tutorials. I also reduced the length of the sleeves and shirt bottom.

Make A Garment A Month, November plan..

Hello lovelies...
Today post is a very quick update of my November sewing plan for make a garment a month challenge hosted by Sarah Liz. I have chosen my fabrics and pattern. It will be a long sleeves shirt with two color combination, both of the fabrics are knit cotton - deep purple color and grey printed with purple leaves.
For the pattern, I chose Burdastyle pattern - Paneled Jersey Shirt 10/2013. The instructions said that I should use jersey knit fabric only, but I think my fabric choice will be good to make the shirt too. We will see... Wish me a good luck!
