In the 15 years since I left school, shirts haven’t been particularly high in my fashion agenda. I have flashbacks to my uniquely hideous school uniform, and feel on edge always waiting for a tut because it’s not tucked…again.
Deer and Doe’s Melilot shirt has cleansed me of my shirt related anxieties.
Deer and Doe design patterns that reflect a realistic body shape, complete with all the curves that come as standard too. This is one of the most incredibly straightforward patterns ever to grace my sewing table which of course means that I am completely in deep sighing love with it already. Being a keener, I’m already planning the next 4 versions. One with sleeves too…cue a sewing squeal.
I prefer a bit of an open collar look personally, probably another trauma from school. I literally look a little too buttoned up in the button up.
This fabric is one of Atelier Brunette’s newer fabrics ‘tabby’ and I was overjoyed to find it in Make @ 140 my local sewing cafe in Plymouth. It was post referendum blues treat!
We are readying ourselves for la rentree/ back to school here. Currently I’m obsessed with new shoes and Autumn colours and dreaming of sewing up Deer and Doe’ s new Safran pattern. Happy September sewing!
