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…
