Rather loud shirt...

When I saw the pattern in the march burda magazine I thought theirs was a little plain… So I chose this fabric. I was going to make my own buttons but I figured it needed some nice plain ones to contrast the colourful print of the fabric. I cut a big size, wanting to give it that oversized shirt look, and then forgot that the magazine patterns don’t have seam allowances! I used the collar from one pattern and the body of the other.

      Thanks! Yes, there are a lot of pics! I took the shirt on holiday, and I love it so much I wore it all the time. So I’m wearing it in most my photos from the trip :)

    Haha, it’s loud alright, but it looks the bomb on you. So I guess it’s suiting ;)

      Thanks! I actually used the body pattern of one the shirts (the one pictured twice in the magazine) and the collar of the other. And I also omitted the pockets.
