Oxford Shirt

Yep, I'm about to clutch my pearls in this pic. 

Look how cute this shirt is! I was originally going to make a stark white shirt but I'm glad I ended up going with a little blue stripe. So much more preppy/ivy league than business formal.

I'm not usually one for lots of volume but I really like this paired with a pencil skirt to balance it out. Next time I make a shirt I'm going to figure out how to do a better placket on the cuff vent. This pattern just has bias binding and it looks a little homemade.

Good thing I always have my cuffs rolled up.

That is a gorgeous shirt! And I love the linen dress you posted a few days ago too. That Heidi pattern is fantastic, isn't it?

Thanks you! Yeah, I've made three Heidis so far. The seaming makes it so easy to grade it to fit my hips.
I'm thinking that next time I might change the waist pleats into princess seams. I've seen so many tutorials on how to do it but I haven't had a chance to try it yet.

I love those waist pleats myself. I'm tempted to go looking for the Heidi pattern and buy it myself. It is from Burdastyle?

But I can understand after 3 of the same pattern, playing round with the style would be quite tempting :-)

Looking forward to seeing another version of it!
