I made this replica for fun. It’s the shirt Caspian wore in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. I used the Butterick 5008 pattern, view A, but I changed it. I shortened the mandarin collar. I added raglan-type seams in the body to reflect the shirt in the film. I also rounded the hem at the bottom of the shirt like Caspian’s. For the sleeves, I added straight cuff sections that button closed. For the button loops, I braided three lengths of embroidery floss to make a cord. I also smocked the center of the sleeves by hand, as well as the top of the sleeve and the bottom. I chain-stitched around the cuffs, collar, and front opening.
I still plan to embroider the shirt like the one in the film, but I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. When I do, I’ll post photos.
3 1/2 yards taupe cotton, 3/4 yards interfacing, 7 1/2" buttons, embroidery floss, thread.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
