Love Fabric Vintage Shirt

Another project whipped up from my sewing list, with the fabric left from the Love Fabric Skirt! This was also my second project from an original vintage pattern, a lovely wrap shirt from Simplicity 4255! I have to say the instructions were a bit tricky to follow and I have improvised on some construction aspects.
The interior is not as neat as I would like but it is still acceptable. The facings don't seem to hold very well and I have to spend some time arranging them inside the shirt.
I quite like the end result and now just have to make some more high waisted skirts and trousers to go with this, as I think it goes super well with my Corduroy trousers.


  1. What fab fabric, which goes so well with that style too! I struggle with wrapover tops and never know what to do with the ties - I wouldn't have thought of wearing a wide belt at the same time - it really works! And hooray for more high-waisted things!

  2. Suzy, it's very elegant and sophisticated looking. I love the shape and style on you. It would be perfect with, like you said a high waisted skirt or pant. I am really enjoying seeing all your creations.

  3. That turned out fabulously. It definitely pairs well with a high wsisted bottom. :]

  4. This is wonderful and the shape suits you beautifully - facings are annoying but I don't know what else you can do. I guess the buttons and buttonholes would normally stop them flapping about, absent in a wrap around. But the effect is stunning, and I hope you'll make more. xx
