Optic Blossom Shirt

Sadly, I made this shirt so long ago that I don’t even really remember which pattern I used. I’m pretty sure that at least part of it is the back and bottom of New Look 6669.

I’m pretty sure I also used the sleeves, come to think of it. But the crossover bodice is from Butterick 4444 and not from the New Look pattern. I like the Butterick crossover better because it is pleated, rather than gathered. I also really like that I didn’t have to insert a side or back zipper for this shirt–it just pulls over. The quilting cotton is a bit stiff, but the pattern is so lovely I couldn’t resist. The only part I dislike is that I accidentally cut the bodice so that the repeat is visible. Oh well. Still a nice shirt.
