Fabric inspiration for Vera

Vera is such a versatile shirt pattern: any lightweigh fabric is going to look great paired with it! You can choose if you prefer an understated shirt in a plain white cotton popelin or a more exuberant look with some colorful viscose for example. And how about adding some contrast using piping around the collar for a pyjama shirt style or topstitching around the edges and pocket to make them pop?

Here are some of our inspiration for the Vera shirt pattern:

Zoom in: The Vera Shirt

Vera is the kind of shirt designed for those days when you want to feel stylish and comfortable at the same time. When I design new patterns, that’s my major goal. 

The Vera shirt has all the details of a classic shirt with its small notched collar and front button closure. But we wanted to give it more lightness and feminity by choosing a loose shape, dropped shoulders and round edges. 

The small gathers at the back of the neckline highlight the notched collar and give volume to the shirt. With the asymmetrical hem, you can choose to wear Vera over a pair of trousers or shorts for a casual look or gathered inside a high waist skirt for a more retro look. 

The rounded hem and the sleeves are finished with facings. We have also added buttontabs to the sleeves in order to roll them up easily. 

We recommend you to use light weight fabrics to make Vera. Depending on the style you want, you might choose fabric with drape for a very light and airy look or fabric with body to highlight the volume of the shirt. We used cotton poplin for both version here. You can also use cotton lawn, linen, rayon, tencel, cupro, gaze, chambray or silk…

The new summer patterns are here!

At last, the new patterns are here! It took time but I am so happy to share these two designs with you:

THE ROMERO TROUSERS

These are sailor trousers with button close on the sides. They are high-waisted, fitted at the waist and hips and then flare at the leg. Elegant but practical as well, they have pockets hidden inside the button closure. You can choose between two lengths: cropped ankle length for View A or shorts for View B.

THE VERA SHIRT

Vera Will be your summer’s best friend with its loose shape and laid-back style.  The classical notched collar is coupled with an asymmetrical hem, longer in the back, and rounded edges to give Vera a modern vibe. The back neckline is softly gathered and the short sleeves can be worn rolled-up thanks to the button tabs.

– You can find the Romero trousers and the Vera shirt in the shop in both printed and PDF versions. –
– Want both patterns? We have prepared a Romero & Vera pack for a special price! –

I’ll come back tomorrow with more details on each pattern…
