Quarter Shirt, PIECED

$250.00 USD

When a recycling program goes right!

As I was cutting these shirts out I realized I didn't have enough to complete a shirt (that hem is DRAMA!). I started to play with different combinations and landed on this awesomesauce. 

By using leftover pieces and patterns, I'm able to make a one of a kind patchwork that is truly a showstopper. 

Key Features include:

  • Light and soft cotton voile
  • Natural dyes
  • Hand cut blocks and block printed by hand
  • Contrasting buttonhole thread
  • Vintage, hand picked, mismatched Corozo buttons (vegetable ivory) and a bright knot of linen thread to finish

So much goes into the yardage before it even gets to me! 

The fabric had to take center stage so a loose, unfussy button-up emerged. Easy to dress up or down with a stand up collar and a dramatic shirttail hem in the back. Don't forget pockets! 

This piece is currently One Size, please reach out if interested in custom sizing, there is no additional charge! I've tried this piece on multiple body shapes and feel comfortable offering it to US women's size 2-16.  

The shirt pictured is a representation. Yours may have different prints and/or placements to ensure adequate fabric usage.

Each pattern is handmade, and handmade items, by nature, have imperfections. Instead of culling these flaws, we have chosen to highlight them. The reason is two-fold: to prevent avoidable waste and as a reminder that this piece is one-of-a-kind.
