Pattern review - The Assembly Line Cap Sleeve Shirt

We never thought we'd use the phrase 'quick sew' about a shirt, but the Assembly Line Cap Sleeve Shirt is a dopamine hit of a pattern that doesn't chew through a whole lot of fabric.

Pattern Review: the Bombazine Shirt (x 3!)

This shirt is a lovely blank canvas; a simple shape finished with a few key details. It's just the sort of dress-it-up, dress-it-down garment that we love and we couldn't wait to try it!
