Simple cotton lawn shirt

If you've been wondering what you could do with all the lovely printed cotton lawn and voile available at Treadle, this pretty shirt made by Mary is a perfect example. Soft cotton lawn and voile are perfect fabrics for this style; the fabric's soft drape prevents the garment from becoming boxy.

Mary used Vogue 8878 to make this shirt.  Simple in cut, with a couple interesting details, this shirt is prefect for spring.  The long sleeves keep it from becoming too chilly, and the straight shape is simple to sew and easy to layer with.
