Seriously...too gorgeous for words, this
showstopping shirt is designed for sheer,
semi-sheer and lightweight knit or woven
fabrics with lots of drape...think bamboo,
rayon, modal or silk jersey for the knits and
try crepe, rayon challis, washed voile & floppy
gauze for your woven version. The wrong side
of the fabric will show on the front of the shirt!
Semi-fitted shirt has a simple collar, front
& back yokes and a wrapped & draped front
which closes with a concealed button placket.
Shirt is longer at the back, and features side
slits for ease of wear, plus long shirt-style
sleeves with a placket & two button cuff.
This one will be totally stunning in stripes
(of course!), but will be just as fabulous in
chic solids or funky prints.
Wear your beautiful shirt tucked into a
slim pencil skirt for an elegant look;
channel your inner Fashion Editor with
the front tucked in and the back left
loose over skinny jeans, or create a
modern casual outfit with the shirt
worn loose over a straight-cut pant.
For sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16 you’ll need around 2 1/2 yards / 228cm fabric.
For sizes 18-20-22-24-26 you’ll need around 2 3/4 yards/250cm fabric.
You’ll also need about 1/4 yard/ 23 cm fusible interfacing for the cuffs,
collar & front facings, plus 5 x 3/8”/1cm diameter buttons;
all fabric amounts are for 60”/150cm wide fabric.
Don’t forget...you can use a knit OR a woven fabric for
this one, as long as your fabric is drape-y!
