More an oversized linen jacket than a shirt. Cut yesterday, sewn today. Lovely quality green and white shot linen remnant from Potter textiles* in Perth, about $18 for 1.5m by memory. It was wide or I wouldn't  have been able to cut this. As it was, the position of the sleeve trim was inspired by having to cut the sleeve ends separately. Lace trim to add interest. The vaguely military overtones will go well with the Mad Motley jacket.

Really this is too big, but I'm pleased with the construction. I will think about how to best ensmallen the pattern around the shoulders before cutting the next shirt. Plain white linen interlining in fronts and collar.
