I’ve developed a button-down obsession! This is view C of Simplicity 2246, with the belt from view B. It was originally shown as a fake skirt/shirt combo, but I chose to make both parts from the same fabric (and added in some pockets). I went up a size, but shortened the length by about 6 inches. You can read more about this project on my blog, Experiments and Accidents.
I used a stretch cotton, but this pattern lends itself to just about anything.
