Sewing Shirts Like Crazy

I have a confession, when I find something I like I can become a little obsessed. Right now it's making shirts (and listening to Blind Melon, The Cure, The Samples, Sum41, Dashboard Confessional and Weezer). I started with a skirt here and a shirt there and now I can't stop.

This one is The Summer Blouse from Weekend Sewing. It is so comfortable but a little boxy for my figure. I decided to do a little research (browsing Anthropologie) and headed to the fabric store. The patterns happened to be $1.99 that day so I grabbed a few... okay seven and a stack of new fabric. I'm averaging about two new shirts a day so I have a feeling this is just the tip of the iceberg. Here is what I've made so far.

I really love those shirts you made....what patterns did you use?

The tanks are both from the Simplicity pattern 3760 and the gathered t-shirts are from Simplicity 2618. 2618 is fitted for stretch knits but I made it I size larger in a cotton and it came out fine.
