I made this using a 1930’s evening gown pattern as inspiration, but sauced it up with some skin-revealing mesh, and made it a little more wearable for the modern woman. The front of the shirt has two pieces cut on the straight grain, and one on the bias for a nice drape. The front of the shirt is also longer than in the back, for more belly coverage.
