Melilot Shirt by Deer and Doe Patterns

Sewing Level: Advanced Beginner 

Fabric: Peppered Cotton supplied by Hart's Fabric who sponsored this project!

I made size and View (if applicable): Size 44 View B (no collar and short sleeves)

My mods: None for the chambray. For the white: swung out the back hem to be 4" wider at the center back, shortened it overall and also evened up the back hem to be the same length as the front. White shirt has curved collar too.

Description: women's button-down shirt with cuffed armhole and collar stand. Side bust dart and shaped hem.

  Notes: This was a sponsored stream by Hart's Fabric- and it's one of their shop favorites! It's quick to sew and for as little shaping as it has to sew (like darts or seams) it fits really well! I made a second one in white the next day with only one fit mod (above). If you want to tuck yours in, I'd make the side swoop at the hem lower (but only if you've shortened yours the way I did my white one. The high curve is barely tucked in).
