Description

I based this on a lightweight linen shirt I got at a thrift store. The cut is very simple, the main pattern consists only of four pieces – for front & back (almost identical), bib (just a rectangle) and sleeves. I added a two-toned shirt collar and thin cuffs for snazzyness. The pictures are super wrinkly because it just came out of the wash, but it looks great when it’s ironed, and more formal than I thought a linen shirt would look.
