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.
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.
