Summer Holiday Hawiian shirt

Added Apr 20, 2011

Edinburgh, Unite...






I made this shirt using a self-drafted pattern based on the design of a bowling shirt. It has a bowling shirt collar, a mock jetted pocket with pink jets on the front and a back yoke with pink piping. It has short sleeves which I turned up and tacked in place.

Material Notes

Linen with cotton for piping and pocket jets.

    The blouse is exquisite and beautifully put together with the right style of skirt. Well styled, excellent poses and backdrop subtle but to the point. In my opinion your photo shoot could grace the pages of any fashion magazine.

    Good lord, lady, I love everything about this! I’m not one for pink or hawaiian print, but you have really made something fabulous and flattering. And one million bonus points for the Pashley Princess; I pine!

    I love the details on this blouse…the colors definitely flatter your skintone and hair. Friends, that pocket isn’t hard. Think of it as a giant buttonhole. Practice on scrap first before you do it on your blouse Now all this blouse needs is a pink cocktail hat and matching gloves and off to the Kentucky Derby you go!
