This is a copy of one of my favourite shirts, which is unfortunately starting to look pretty tatty at the edges. My first attempt at patterning it has come out visually successful although I did make some mistakes (which I hid on the inside half of the wrap – mostly miscalculating some lengths on the waist band, since I did it with a guess on required seams). The original came from Max (store in NZ) a long time ago.
The white fabric is cotton with hole-y stripes with some green woven into the hole-y bits. The green is a super-light cotton silk blend. I’m so thrilled this shirt will live on. I’m going to make more of these – it’s just so comfortable and flattering!
