The safari shirt

I made this khaki military style shirt for a safari I went to in Tanzania. It’s a mix of two Burdastyle patterns: the pleat in the back, and the pockets are from the 10/2010 #102 pattern, while the buttons on the front and the sleeve cuffs are taken from the 09/2013 ##121 pattern. More details on the blog.

      Thank you Ivana, all I needed was an iron, but it’s a rarity on holidays. :)
