Her post about the pattern: Black & White Colette Jasmine

What kind of fabric did you use? A silky soft white rayon and a black linen/rayon blend for the collar.

How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? This year one of my sewing goals is to fill in gaps in my wardrobe – one of which was solid color tops. The Jasmine pattern was perfect for that goal. And with the simple black and white and the cute tie this shirt has a sort of feminine 1960s French vibe which I love. What thoughts do you have about the project? This is the first bias cut shirt I’ve ever made and I love it. It’s great that I don’t need any closures to put the shirt on yet it is still form fitting without being uncomfortable. I think I’m hooked on bias sewing now!

Thanks, Dixie!

This is so effortlessly chic, I absolutely love it! I’m working on a polka dot version at the moment, but I’m convinced I’ll be making some plain versions now too!

Each time I see this design the more tempted I am to make one of my own. It really just looks smart and yet could also be a casual addition to any wardrobe.
