My new shirt and it’s a stash bust. Hooray! I’d bought some fabric, but I was having a coffee and the Scott Mackenzie song “San Francisco” kept coming into my head. So I went back to buy it. I’ve loved that song since I was a child.
I’m not usually a flowered dress person, certainly not little flowers like this fabric so it sat in a drawer for quite a long time.
This shirt was the answer. I used Simplicity 3684. I made the same style a year or two ago from the good bits of an old duvet cover but sadly it’s worn out now. I think the Nehru collar gives it the look of a late 60s or maybe early 70s shirt and that’s a look I like.
The pattern has lots of frilly bits attached but I don’t suit frills so this is plain. The buttons were rescued from another blouse. They fitted the theme.
And I sang “San Francisco” whilst I made it.
This is the necklace I’m wearing in the last photo. Can you believe that my other half found this in the garden? It was in a bush. I wonder what happenned? It’s a bit more purple than this in reality so those of you who know me will appreciate that I was certain to like it, but I doubt it was left as a present for me.
