1972! Seersucker Gingham Shirt


Shirt made from unwanted trousers (my mum's), I had to cut the back in two panels.I cut the size 34 Simplicity 5022 1972 blouse pattern but cut the seams slimmer and folded over the front instead of cutting interfacing. I didn't have enough fabric for a collar. I sewed on 11 buttons using interfacing wrapped over the panel then torn off after sewing, this is because the fabric is raised so won't move for the one-step button hole. Flat felled shoulder seams, I thought this would be a nice touch on a casual blouse as I have seen it on denim.

Worn on a bikeride past cornfields to Mapledurham House
