Doll Style - The Everyday Shirt Buttoned Up

Lea out shopping in her Everyday Shirt

The everyday shirt is so easy to make. If you want a nice shirt that looks as good as the Boy Friend Shirt but is much less fiddly to sew this is the pattern to go for. It is Pattern 1837 Everyday Shirt and will be published soon.

Today's first outfit is the everyday shirt teamed with skinny straight jeans. The shirt is made in pink polycotton gingham and the jeans are made with a pale pink linen. I was going for a 12 year old pony club look. The pink check has a very country look.



The next variation has fancy boots and the shirt tails out for a casual day at the country show. She could be a 12 year old or a 17 year old in this outfit.



The final variation with the pink check has a 17 year old Lea hitting the shops on Rodeo Drive.



The second outfit has the everyday shirt done in a red and navy plaid and I have teamed it with dark crop jeans. As with the pink gingham this plaid pattern gives the outfit a casual look.



Because the shirt hangs below the waist you can team it with any pull-on trousers. They don't have to be fancy jeans.

I don't have a big wardrobe selection to go with the plaid shirt. I like this dolman top (I don't have a pattern out for this one yet). It goes well with a skirt.


Look out for the Everyday Shirt 1837 and 2037 coming soon. It  gives the same great look as the Boy Friend Shirt but is a bit simpler to sew.

I sell my patterns on Craftsy and Etsy and I have just started putting up some patterns on Craftumi in Australian dollars and also Makerist.com in Euros.
