Sew yourself a casual but stylish shirt with the Melilot sewing pattern from Deer and Doe. This shirt pattern has all the classic details: collar with collar stand, sleeve cuffs and plackets, the possibility of a hidden button-band and lined chest pockets! With its loose but flattering cut due to its bust darts and slightly cinched waist, the Melilot shirt is as elegant worn over trousers as it is tucked into a high-waisted skirt. The drop shoulders give a casual-chic twist to the long sleeves version, and transform into cuffed kimono short sleeves in version B: so retro!
With Mélilot, it’s all in the details: collar and sleeve cuffs are subtly rounded to make the shirt more soft and romantic, and the curved split hem has just enough asymmetry to make things interesting. And depending of what fabric and which variation you choose, your Mélilot shirt can have a wide range of styles!
Like all Deer & Doe sewing patterns, the Melilot sewing pattern includes easy-to-follow instructions with photos showing you how to sew each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.
