Libby shirt from Sew Over It
Boxy and beautiful is the latest sewing pattern
from Sew Over It - Libby shirt
With its boxy shape, cropped hem and pretty collar, Libby is a contemporary but timeless little shirt with lots of potential. It features a loose fit, button-up front, notched collar, partial collar stand, unlined yoke with gently gathered back, and short grown-on cuffed sleeves.
Libby looks perfect for wearing with a high-waisted skirt or jeans, and as it has a cropped hem with two options: you can keep it straight across the front, or gently curve it to add a little extra length. Both versions feature a slightly curved back hem. The shirt makes the perfect canvas for fun prints although it looks just as gorgeous in a solid colour fabric too.
The unusual collar stand and notched collar gives sewers the chance to build your sewing skills. It's easier to sew than a traditional collared shirt, manageable, fun-to-make and a stylish introduction to shirtmaking.
