The Classic

I made a “classic” shirt.

I encountered this wonderful fabric at my local shop – a light weight, light blue chambray punctuated with neon green and pink. It is SO SOFT, as if I’ve been wearing it for years.

This shirt’s called The Classic because it mimics one of those blue denim shirts seemingly everyone has button up, long sleeves, semi-fitted…


The pattern I used is the Deer&Doe Melilot. Surprise! Usually, I careen through it with little regard for the directions. Maybe it was the wonderful fabric, or my desire to have a classic shirt, but I followed the directions to the letter this time.

Which is why I finally got the placket to be perfect. It lays flat and isn’t all smooshed and wonky.

I’ve worn it loose, tucked in, sleeves up and down. I love this shirt!!
