A really fun and easy shirt to make. Lots of photos on my website www.poppiesandthistle.com There are low darts that help give it a slouchy draped look across the neck and bust. It is otherwise fitted, and there is an invisible zipper on the back. The very best part of this pattern is that you can make a faux undershirt, which creates the illusion that you are wearing a shirt underneath. In reality it is a band that you snap into the main garment. I made two—-one is a Liberty of London print that I happened to have on hand—-it is an example of truly mixing prints and textures. I think this is a more casual look, and would look great with jeans. The other fabric I used was a faux tweed cotton, which is slightly more dressy. This also gives you the option to wear no band at all, for an almost cropped, fit-at-the-waist look. Please see my blog for more photos www.poppiesandthistle.com

    That’s beautiful! Actually it’s the only pattern I’ll use from November issue. The fabric makes this plain pattern really interesting.

      Thank you! The neck is very form fitting, so keep an eye on that for your own personal level of comfort. My fabric was thick enough, that I could have skipped putting in the facing, and this would have given me extra room in the neck.
