Best charity shop fabric find this week? That would have to be this pretty cotton print— 3 ½ yards/metres for $2! Oh, hang on, they were having a half price sale so that makes it $1.
This fabric is saying shirt to me. The pattern I used for the Touch of the Orient shirt might do the trick with a few modifications.
|Simplicity No 6410, dated 1985|
This time I'll button it through and add the sleeve from Views 1 & 2 but stick with the collar from View 4, turning it back instead of leaving it up as I did for the Touch of the Orient version. I'll use the tucks down the front and add princess style darts to the back for a shaped line, and perhaps a curved shirt tail.
Stay tuned for the outcome!
