Description

Well, this is a linen button up shirt with……….lots of work!!! I made this shirt a few years ago while my eldest son was in hospital…..I needed to take my mind off my worries and this shirt allow me to do that for several evenings….because all of it was done at night. I worked the fabric by pieces….there are small pintucks, there is faggoting there, there is ribbon work also, and also pulled thread embroidery…plus…fancy finishings on the hem and the 3/4 sleeve hem. I also lined the shirt with swiss organdi, and put a double facing to hide the mother of pearl buttons.

Material Notes

100% linen, and swiss organdy as lining.

    Beautifully detailed shirt! I like the basic style of the shirt, where did you get the pattern from?

      Actually schnuj, it is not difficult at all, it is a matter of patient, but the result looks a bit more complicated. I thank you for your words.

    Hi Adriana! I think this has to be one of your nicest piece! All this detail in one garment, it’s amazing. It must took many many hours of taking your attention away from worrying. My grandma use to finish her cross stitch embroideries with the pulled thread embroidery. It’s such a nice touch. Hope all is well with you!
