another black shirt ;)

I made this shirt from the same cotton I used for the pleated shirt, but made a very different pattern. This one has a fitted underbust piece, made out of 4 seperate panels, with the chest pieces put on with gathers (especially at the bust). Hook and eye closure, puffed sleeves gathered in pleats halfway down (I stole that idea from BWOF november (?) but made my own version). I just saw that I didn’t button the cuffs before taking the pictures, but those are functional cuffs. The skirt is a simple A-line with a blind zipper at the side. I loved this print, but unfortunatelly it was really rough, scratchy synthetic fabric on the inside, so I lined it.
black cotton, hook and eye tape, woven fusible interfacing, fairly sturdy printed fabric, lining fabric, blind zipper
I made the patterns myself, using my blocks
