The office I work in has a temperature of very cold to frigid year round, but outside of the office South Carolina can get quite toasty in the summer. The only solution I have found is to layer my clothes so I don't freeze or bake to death. I have tons of cardigans to wear over short sleeved or sleeve-less tops.
I have been wanting to add some more tops to my wardrobe and thought that maybe I could make some and thought the Gemma shirt would it the bill. I am a fan of Made by Rae, having made a couple of Geranium dresses for my daughter and a Washi dress for me.
The top really did go together super quickly. The most time consuming part was the bias binding on the neck and arm holes (and there are even options to not use the bias tape but I think that it really adds a nice detail).
After I had my first Gemma top complete, I was already hunting through my stash for fabric to make another...so you may be seeing a few more Gemma shirts on the blog in the next few months :)
Sorry about the pictures in this post. My 9 year old was the photographer and I was talking to him while he was taking pictures. So my face in every (in-focus, usable) picture had this super weird expression, hence the cropping of my head :)
