    Hi there! I’m somewhat new – I made the lazy days skirt about 5 times about 5 years ago and a couple of Sis Boom patterns. I’m not super experienced but want to sew something for myself. What Liesl & Co pattern would you recommend? What was easiest for you? I’m looking at Every Day Skirt but would really like to learn to sew shirts, but they all look a little too hard. Any tips for where to jump in?

    I’m glad you’re here, @melissamlb42! I’ll be curious to hear what other members of the forum have to say, but I’d probably steer you toward the Woodland Stroll Cape or the Weekend Getaway Blouse next. Both of them are quite simple and straightforward but will challenge your skills to develop a little bit. And I think they both have a certain amount of fudge factor, by which I mean that a few mistakes won’t show too much. I hope that helps!

    I highly recommend the everyday skirt for sure and the Cappacino tunic as well. I love how this top can be sewn in a knit as well besides a woven.

    The Gallery Tunic is a perfect “fake” shirt. You get a collar and placket to work with, but it’s a really easy placket technique. There are no buttonholes and fitting is easy as it’s a loose fitting style with pleats front and back for extra ease.
    I’m living in a dress I made recently from this pattern, so it’s was to wear too.
    Another vote for the Everyday Skirt as well.

    Can you do the gallery tunic in short sleeves? I live in a hot climate.
