Liesl & Co - Camp Shirt - Polka Dot




I wanted to do some print mixing with my stripe skirt, so polka dots it is





Camp style shirts (pinterest inspiration) are currently in style so I went with that style using 
Liesl & Co's Camp Shirt  I am wearing it with my McCall's skirt 



My fabric is from Mood Fabrics' White/Black polkda dot stretch cotton twill - it has a nice crisp drape and perfect for this shirt.  



The pattern has great features, one of which is this great back pleat.  That isn't the best feature, this pattern comes in A/B, C and D cup pattern pieces!  



One thing you do need to note is to compare the pattern sizing and finished measuring measurements.  This pattern runs big, I made a size 6 but I might go down to a size 4, in the waist and hips.  I like the camp style but I just don't want an oversized camp shirt.

The pattern does come in long sleeve and short sleeve, for some reason I like the short sleeve better. 
The sleeve cuffs on the short sleeves are a fun feature, too.  It was a pleasant surprise how quickly this went together and perfectly.  The pattern is well-drafted and excellent instructions.  Here is a blog post at
 Oliver & S blog all about the Camp Post   and then inspiration for the Camp Shirt pattern 


This polka dot blouse will be in big rotation all this summer with jeans, shorts, skirts - you get the idea


Disclosure - I receive a monthly fabric allowance from Mood Fabrics to make a garment.
