A shirt for gentle contemplation and for shuffling about the house, flower arranging and dust busting.
This is McCalls 5233. Originally I had hoped this could be a top one could wear outside the house, but it seems pretty comfortable as a housecoat, so I say, kay sera sera, let it be whatever it wants to be.
The yellow + blue flowers fabric is a $2NZ per meter cotton score and the blue is a polycotton.
I decided to make the pattern harder then it should have been, so experimented with pleats on the cuffs and on the front band, as well as on the obi. The curved pleats were very fun to draft. I can’t seem to get them pressed in an even flow, but they are still pretty neat.
The flower broach is a lotus, folded out of the same yellow fabric. The obi ties have Chinese knots.
