When a recycling program goes right!
As I was cutting these shirts out I realized I didn't have enough to complete a shirt (that hem is DRAMA!). I started to play with different combinations and landed on this awesomesauce.
By using leftover pieces and patterns, I'm able to make a one of a kind patchwork that is truly a showstopper.
All the same info still applies: Light and soft cotton voile, hand cut blocks, natural dyes and block printed by hand. So much goes into the yardage before it even gets to me!
The fabric had to take center stage so a loose, unfussy button-up emerged. Easy to dress up or down with a stand up collar and a dramatic shirttail hem in the back. Don't forget pockets!
Not to be diminished are the little details like contrasting buttonhole thread, vintage, hand picked, mismatched Corozo buttons (vegetable ivory) and a bright knot of linen thread to finish.
This piece is currently One Size, please reach out if interested in custom sizing, there is no additional charge! I've tried this piece on multiple body shapes and feel comfortable offering it to US women's size 2-16.
