    One of the new patterns we received from Merchant and Mills is this easy-to-wear and easy-to-make Dress Shirt. The shape is relaxed, loose and very comfortable - inspired by a classic gentleman's shirt. This is a great beginner pattern that will flatter all body types.

    Featuring beautiful and subtle tailoring, we cut the yoke on the bias for visual interest and lined the bib and yoke in a luxurious Liberty of Lawn - only a fat quarter* was needed! (*for sizes 12 and smaller)

    We shortened the hem to tunic length so it can be worn with leggings or skinny jeans but the pattern would look lovely at dress length - perfect as your pool side cover-up!
