      1. Where did you get the pattern? I’m in love with it – but probably would never make it. Inquiring minds need to know ‘where’ to purchase – in case of an emergency!!

  1. Oh WOW! What a style. This is super cool, and you’re totally right that she is absolutely rocking this 🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻
    Really love this pattern, shirts can be awfully dull but this is amazingly different (and you know I love stuff like that!)
    FABULOUS.

  2. That’s gorgeous…really like it, and it suits your OH beautifully. Lovely work DF.
    Just thinking though…how bad is it going to be to iron? I hate ironing shirts.

  3. Dawn is totally rocking that shirt (and her fabulous hairstyle)! This pattern is so “you” with its intricate sewing details and interesting style – it worked out well that you got to sew it and have a lucky recipient to wear it.

  4. WOW! Beautiful shirt, Gorgeous lady wearing beautiful shirt & wonderful you for making this for her.
    I am seriously wanting to make this for me.
    I’m 5’9″ tall so may have to lengthen it a wee bit.
    You did a great job on this.

    1. Thank you! If lengthening, you’ll prob need to do it at the waist, and re-draw the pleats…they are very large pattern pieces and might not fit the fabric if you just elongate from the hem [probably obvious, ignore me lol]

  5. It’s a brilliant shirt. I’m just about to do my buttonholes before tackling the hem – your finished pictures are inspiring me to get it done. Dawn really suits this.

    1. Wonderful patterns-I’m waiting to see what she comes up with next. I love her designs but don’t see many of the others fitting into my style…just that Salt jacket. SO cool though!

  6. I’m starting to view you as my “stunt sewist” as we buy the same patterns but you actually make them 🙂 This shirt is spectacular… Bravo!

    1. Yup- It starts at the first dart one the left side front, goes right across to the other side, and I hand stitched it down to the inside of all the pleats. Works REALLY well, I’m rather chuffed!

  9. Congrats on another wonderful make – waist stay is inspired. A gorgeous shirt that so suits Dawn. Like many I have this in my pattern collection unmade. Yours is inspiring me especially as the fabric was bought some months ago. Just have to overcome the fundamental problem of not liking shirts.
    PS Love your sense of humour

    1. It’s not that heavy on yardage, rather like a wide swing shape, but the curves go up and down into the body of the pieces too, if that makes sense. I can’t imagine it in any colour other than white, it’s that origami feel to it I think
