Recently, I’ve made some high waisted trousers and skirts, but I’ve just been wearing them with normal shirts (sometimes tucked in) and sweaters. To make the most of the high waisted look, I designed this wide, cropped and pleated shirt. Getting the pleating at the front right took some effort (the darts from the sloper have to be distributed in some of the pleats. that’s a lot easier on paper than in reality). It worked out in the end, the dummie is a little bit bustier than me, so on me, it looks good It’s got six pleats at front and back and an inverted box pleat in each sleeve. Simple collar stand. Although it doesn’t show in these pictures, the pleats flare out when I move around in it, creating a nice line.
