Description

A white cotton over-sized shirt made with this Burda pattern from 2004. I have made a lot of blouses and tops in patterned fabrics but I also need plain tops sometimes, too. This shirt will be worn with my paisley harem pants to create a relaxed, exotic look – I hope!

This shirt would also be successful in printed fabrics, and I have made it again in a blue and white paisley.

Burda 8358 is a very easy pattern to make, except for the point where the collar band meets the front edge.

If made in the longer length, it could be worn with tights or leggings as a tunic or mini-dress.

Material Notes

A very stiff white cotton, so stiff that it was hard to get pins and needles into it. I hope washing will soften it.
Second version: a black and white batik print paisley bought in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, but probably made in the USA.

    The blue and white shirt is my second version. The fabric is a cotton batik bought in Kuala Lumpur, although the shopkeeper said it was probably American rather than a local product.

    Wow it looks professionally made. I love this, because there are so many possibilities. You’ve inspired me. Thanks.

    My finished shirt, worn with paisley harem pants (McCalls 5889).

    The white version worn by the model with fly-away hair is the pattern envelope’s picture of view B.

    The striped version is part of my inspiration: Vogue 1328 by Perry Ellis from the 1980s.
