|Old Ben Sherman Shirt.|
|Old M&S shirts.|
The pattern is The Sailor Top by Marilla Walker. I really love my knit version; Marilla said it was also suitable for woven fabric, and I wanted to try it out in a risk-free way. She's right, it works really well. These are comfy, if a little patchwork in aesthetic!
I found the top so much easier to sew up than my first version. Always easier the second time, I suppose. It flew together quickly, and even though I had to colour block with different shirts, I think it works for an everyday kinda shirt.
|Original button placket down the back!|
I've already worn the check one quite a bit even though these were only really to play with the pattern in woven.
Next up, my Sew Over It vintage shirt dress, which I am almost finished with. I just need to find the right buttons and not get distracted by a shiny, new project! Must... not... get... distracted...
