This is a simple, flattering shirt that I will wear all summer. The pattern itself runs larger than I wanted so I cut this version smaller and longer, while simplifying and lengthening the sleeves.
Such a good thing when the fabric tells you what it wants. American Beauty Italian Cotton Woven did that even before I decided I wanted to use it for a shirt. So many design possibilities, so much fun to play with. Three different stripes arriving from three different angles in three different colors along with that beautiful bouquet of roses was just too fabulous to miss.
In my life I can never have too many knit t-shirt/tunic tops, they make up the backbone of my closet, and I love both the planning and the making. Katherine and I have these kinds of garments in mind when we choose the designs and color ways for our French digital collection.
Butterick 6771 is the perfect shirt for color blocking and pattern play. The front has four pattern pieces of varying sizes which works really well for creative play. I’ve made many versions of this pattern and I’m always learning as I go.
This is my happy coat. Every time I put it on I smile. My version that I took to Paris is made from Cast Iron Charcoal Stretch Rainwear. Too bad it only rained one day! The luck of good weather. I love the way it goes over everything and dresses up even the most casual pair of jeans.
The studio working name for Vogue 1925 is the Moto Jacket, a lightly fitted jacket with optional hood or collar, flattering princess seams in two lengths (24 ¾” and 27 ¾”), separating zipper and easy to sew inseam faux welt pockets. This flattering jacket skims the figure yet has enough ease to slide over a top, t-shirt or shirt.
