I’ve been wanting to make another @paper_theory #olyashirt ever since I made my striped dress version in the summer. I had this @merchantandmills tencel in my stash and I’ve not been sure what to make with it as the colour was an odd choice for me. I think I had something in mind to make it into when I bought it last year, but I have no idea what it was. I thought the tencel would work really well for this shirt and, though it isn’t the most exciting print/colour, I really think this shirt will be a staple. It will look great over a turtleneck when it’s colder. I want at least four more of these shirts because it is so comfortable, a perfect fit and easy to wear.
I omitted the pockets on this version as I have a very large bust and felt it would be too bulky and noticeable with this plain fabric. I miss them though, because they’re awesome pockets to make and use, and will definitely put them on my other versions with printed fabric.
