Lisette + Co Classic Shirt

Posted on

I was so excited when my favorite pattern company, Oliver + S/Liesl + Co announced their new Classic Shirt pattern. As soon as the pattern became available, I bought it. I have been steadily working on it and finished it on Friday. The only think I need to figure out is how to shape the back waist. I always need back darts, pleats or something to keep it from looking like I’m wearing a bag due to upright back, swayback, protruding derriere, etc. Since there are pleats in the back yoke, I’m thinking I’m going sew a tuck in through the waist that continues the pleat line┬ásince darts didn’t work out so well. The pattern fits great, otherwise- I made a straight size 8 with the A/B cup front.
