Another Style Arc Lauren Boyfriend shirt.
This boyfriend style shirt is a wearable example of the new trend in shirts. Sleeve interest is such an important part of the current trends and this shirt has a longer than usual cuff with the buttoning at the front. Roll the sleeves up to give an easy, casual look, great over jeans or a pair of slouchy pants. The men's style shirt tails makes this a perfect over shirt.
I used some pretty Japanese lawn from Spotlight
And this time I added side vents.
I think the softer fabric works better in this pattern.

This shirt is deliciously cool to wear.
It fits very nicely into my capsule wardrobe.
My bust measurement put me in the size 10 and I didn't worry about a FBA. I took the chance that would be enough ease and Elsa was happy to take it if it was too small.
I do like Style Arc, it is only my second Style Arc sew but I am a convert.
Not instruction heavy but that is okay with me. The paper pattern are only one size but if you purchase a PDF version it comes with three.
My only real grumble is the ink runs if you press the pattern. I am a pretty pedantic presser and this caused some issues.
I didn't set in my sleeves after sewing the side seams, no need, they go in nicely flat.
I did interface the cuff as I like to roll it and it stays nice and smooth with that added body.
I am now tossing up between a white or pale blue linen version...
Blue would get a second wear before laundering...
Thanks for reading.
