The starting point for this shirt was this dress pattern I found on m-sewing site. I altered it, made the wrap parts more overlap, added collar and lengthened sleeves.
The fabric I used is woven and slightly gathered, so it stretches a lot. Hence I didn’t have to add a zipper. And guess what? No ironing needed! :)
