Description

This is a linen boyfriend shirt, I actually bought the Safari Jacket pattern here which is along the same lines, and for a rough draft I whipped up this linen shirt more along the boyfriend shirt style, no drawstring and only one pocket, and a shorter length. This was attempt at hand sewn buttonholes and I found they came out very well. It was slow going though.

    it’s a nice shirt and the buttonhole looks good. I prefer handmade buttonholes although they are very time consuming.

    Oh! Nice thing! This flowery fabric makes the shirt more feminine. I was thinking about linen shirt too, but was afraid that it might be crumpled during a wearing.

      I think that is a valid concern haha! I’m sure I’ll have to be careful with this one :)
