With its boxy shape, cropped hem and pretty collar, Libby is a contemporary yet timeless little shirt with loads of potential.
The Libby Shirt features a comfortable loose fit, button-up front, notched collar, partial collar stand, unlined yoke with gently gathered back, and short grown-on cuffed sleeves. Ideal for wearing with a high-waisted skirt or jeans, the Libby Shirt has a cropped hem with two options: keep it straight across the front, or gently curve it to add a little extra length. Both versions feature a slightly curved back hem. Uninterrupted by darts, the Libby Shirt makes the perfect canvas for fun prints – though of course she looks gorgeous in a solid too.
Thanks to its easy fit, with this pattern you can really focus on nailing the details. The unusual collar stand and notched collar give you the chance to build your sewing skills. Easier to sew than a traditional collared shirt, it’s a manageable and stylish intro into the world of shirtmaking.
