I used a piece of chambray (Robert Kaufman Slub Chambray in Indigo) that I have had in my stash for awhile. You can’t beat a good chambray and Robert Kaufman knows how to make them.
This shirt is definitley a wardrobe staple. It coordinates with everything and is easy and comfortable to wear. I’m not a fan of wearing the sleeves down so always roll them up or wear a jacket over the top when I wear the shirt. Because of the loose, boxy fit of the shirt I feel a bit frumpy when the sleeves are down, but I like the rolled up look so that works for me!
I’m debating on whether I should curve in the side seams a little when I make another, just to add a more feminine shape. I made a size 6 and am really happy with the fit.
The only thing that kind of bugs me about the shirt is the blue tone of the chambray is similar to most of my jeans so I feel like I’m a bit “double denim” when I wear it with jeans! Overall though, I give this pattern two big thumbs up – the sew-along is a great reference too for unfamiliar parts of the shirt and it comes together beautifully.
