I had been resisting temptation on this shirt pattern for a while as I thought it was too close to the Deer and Doe Melilot, but I finally gave in and I’m so glad I did!

As always with Closet Case Patterns, the instructions are excellent (apart from a little confusion in constructing the concealed button band, but that might have just been me) and the details are spot-on. I’m enjoying this cropped version in a structured fabric but can’t wait to experiment with the other views in fabrics with more drape.

All in all, stylish, wearable, and fun to make. More notes and photos on my blog:
