1920's Shirt with Kimono Sleeves

October 6, 2009 by Britex Fabrics 1 comment(s)

Laura made this top in an Italian wool challis panel print. Note the subtly belled ¾ length sleeves with pointed edges. There is a kind of Bloomsbury Group feel to this shirt, maybe due to the soft colors and interesting pattern mixture. Laura used Decades of Style pattern #1902, a 1920 Tunic with a Kimono Sleeve.
