MERCHANT AND MILLS • The Ellsworth Shirt
The Ellsworth is an oversized, boxy shirt with a dropped back hem and half placket. Swingy and absurdly comfortable.
Skill level • Suitable for those with some sewing experience.
This is a multi-size paper pattern, including sizes 6 – 18. Seam allowances are included in the pattern at 1.5 cm, unless otherwise stated.
Suggested fabric • 3-6oz linen, cotton poplin, cotton lawn, cotton double gauze, cotton chambray, Tencel, hemp/cotton blends. Do not choose anything too heavy, as the back is lower than the front it will pull down making it uncomfortable at the neck!
Trims needed • matching thread / 6 x 11-15mm buttons / 30cm lightweight interfacing
