The Gilbert Top from Helen’s Closet is a cute button up shirt with a camp-style collar and a relaxed fit. View A has short sleeves and a tie-front. This slightly cropped top is very comfortable and looks great with mid to high-rise bottoms.
View B has long bell sleeves and a longer length, perfect for tucking into high-waisted trousers. There’s an optional breast pocket and both feature a front facing for the button placket. The top has a beautiful back yoke and collar that is finished using the ‘burrito method’. This Mix and match the views to get loads of great looks!
This pattern is sutiable for light to medium weight woven fabrics with no stretch. Choose linen, cotton (lawn, poplin, seersucker, double gauze, shirting), silk noil, cotton/linen blends or cotton/hemp blends. View B works best in drapier fabrics with fluid movement. Choose tencel twill , silk crêpe, and rayon/viscose challis or poplin. View A works best in fabrics without an obvious right and wrong side – because the wrong side of the tie may be visible when worn. The pattern comes in a wide range of sizes 0-30
