Wellington, New ...
Using a vintage 1950’s pattern, Home Journal 11553. This is the second time I’ve made this pattern – the first shirt I made from it quickly became a go-to piece in my wardrobe, so it deserved to be made up again. ;-)
This is a lovely pattern. It’s fitted around the waist with released tucks, and has small pleats at the neckline for detail.
You can see more about it over on my blog
