While the mocha Waikerie got a lot of wear, this peach shirt has been somewhat spurned.
The mocha linen was a slightly heavier weight and is totally opaque, but I didn’t reach for this shirt because it pretty clearly displayed my bralettes and my favourite black bra. Recently I read that a red bra works as a flesh tone and can’t be seen through things, and I was pleased to find that works for me with this shirt!
Of course, I don’t like to wear a bra very often so I’ve now got a plan to make some red Banksia Bralettes!
Pattern details: This is Size F of the Waikerie Shirt, with some breast pockets, a straightened-out the side seam and extra fabric in the pleat at the back of the shirt. I added length to the sleeves.
Fabric & notions details: This 180gsm linen is not opaque, and certainly wouldn’t last long as pants for me. I used Corozo buttons from Auckland-based Hawes & Freer to pair with the soft pink.
