I am on a shirt making binge, looking for that magical shirt pattern, when I stumble into a thrift store to find a full range of fine cotton shirts with their tags still on, and even a linen tunic and a silk bias skirt. Is the universe telling me to stop trying and just buy them? Or do they want me to use them as patterns?
Here is the first shirt, Ralph Lauren Blue Label, $4.00, how could this not come home with me?
I especially like the sleeves, fitted along the armhole and full at the long cuff, and the mother of pearl buttons.
So what to wear with it if it's warm?
Black poplin skirt Butterick 5756.
What to wear with it if it's cold?
Vintage Navy Suede skirt
And it can be worn with jeans or navy pants, a winner!!! One outfit option identified for cold and warm weather, 14 more to go...
