Farmer's Market Shirt

Added Mar 13, 2011

by erica-penton

Halifax, Canada






This is the second version I’ve made of McCalls 5929. This time, I eliminated the ruffles, used the collar, and doubled the number of buttons. I love the results! It’s quickly become my go-to shirt – it works for everything!

You can read more about the process on my blog, Experiments and Accidents.

Material Notes

I used crepe, but just about anything would work for this pattern!




Spring, Summer, Fall
Garment Type
Casual, Preppy

    Hmm. This blouse fits you well…and it’s no wonder…the pattern is sized for A, B, C cups. I’m nearly ecstatic as an A cup girl. Also for even more give, this would be fabulous in a stretch cotton.
