The pattern, fabric and buttons are all from my stash.
Pattern: Simplicity 3684, Threads Collection, misses button shirt.
Fabric: white cotton embroidered lawn from Mood
Buttons: polished stone bought at a fair some years ago.
I spent 2 days working on this shirt and am in love with it! It is soft and lovely and drapey and is everything I was wanting it to be!
It is a little bit oversized, I did this on purpose so I could wear it open over a tank or bathing suit. Or as a relaxed button up. The fabric was lovely to work with and is so soft. The pattern fit great except for the sleeve which size I altered quite a bit, tapering down 5 sizes to the wrist. The wrist would still be too large if this was to be used as a dress shirt! Other than that alteration I used the pattern as is using the C cup front tissue.
A Great big THANK YOU to Faye for holding this challenge!
It has been fun and I added 5 new shirts to my wardrobe, all of which are packed in my suitcase for our trip to Jamaica!!
