This fabric is the same fabric used to make A’s work shirt, and there is still enough left to make a top for M. The pattern for this shirt started out as the basic darted shirt that was used for the pink blouse:
I made the following changes to the pattern: added a yoke in back that extends over the shoulder to the front, added a back pleat, added pockets over the darts. Here’s what the shirt would look like:
This is a very nice casual shirt that is not very fitted but suitable for activities that require movement, like driving. Right now it looks a little boxy at the bottom edge, so in future versions I will take in the sides about 1/2 inch at the bottom edge and taper the new seamline up to the armhole.
Shirt No. 7 is already cut out and waiting by the sewing machine.
