    wondering about the pattern – is it one you created yourself or an old one you had on hand? I am looking for a simple sleeveless pattern that either pulls over, has a zip or a loop button closure. I do not like to make button holes and want something that shows off the fabric or vintage trim. Any ideas?

      I created the pattern myself base on my sloper. This pattern was created around 2010? Originally, this is drafted with long sleeves and a placket but I omitted both since its hot in Northern CA during the summer. If you have a previous pattern, basic one, you can easily modified it to be sleeveless. Omit the sleeves. Take the shoulder in about 1/2" and blend it down the armhole. If you want it more boxy, add 1/4 to the side or as you please. Just remember, 1/4 × 4 (4 sides) will give you additional 1" ease to the shirt. let me know if you have any questions!
