I made this shirt in high school (maybe 7 years ago now?!) and as such, it’s a bit small for me to model :) It is made from a beautiful red-orange brocade and features a mandarin collar. There are also small cap sleeves and a gold frog. I discovered that sleeves have a front and back from working on this shirt….I put the first one on the wrong way the first time… the frog closure is false, there is a zipper in the center back. There are also small slits on either side of the garment. I did use a pattern, but it has been so long, I can’t recall what company or number it I used. It is a polyester brocade (if I remember correctly) but still breathes surprisingly well!
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
