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.

  2. My wish right now is that God should continue to bless Dr Emu for his good works towards the life of those people who are heart broken. My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it's been a while since my lover's attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn't need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what's-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; emutemple@gmail.com , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with... Thank you Dr Emu.
