This is from a pattern by The Sewing Workshop called the ZigZag Shirt. It’s very loose and is draped longer in the back. The yoke is unique and wraps around the neck, a bit interesting to figure out the pattern piece, but it comes out beautifully!
I chose a double sided fabric with steel grey on one side, and shimmery copper on the opposite side. Bits of the copper thread show on the dull grey to give a wonderful dimensional quality to the fabric. I chose to show the copper along the yoke and roll the sleeves to show the copper side. The buttons are vintage from a local antique store.
