Description

Vintage Simplicity 4811 (1954) short sleeved shirt. Made in a spotty cotton for #RedOctober, an idea by sewcialists on Twitter. I didn’t want to buy any more fabric, still trying to stashbust. This cute print was made for this pattern though! I used flat fell seams throughout, topstitched the yoke, cuffs & collar. Buttons were from the stash too, so I recon I did well!

This shirt is for sale in my Etsy shop
