Polly J top
A shirt to express your creativity
The POLLY J top is a buttonned loose-fitting shirt. It has a big contrast-edge collar. Use your fabric scraps to make your own combination of colours ! The shirt comes in two versions :
- View A : with a waistband ; the bottom of the shirt is gathered.
- View B : with a curved hem (no waistband).
The pattern comes with long sleeves. I shortened the sleeves for the sample version.
