Cabin is an easy, comfortable, and flattering shirt or shift dress.
Version 1 is a shirt finished with 1/2" bias facing around the neckline, sleeves, and hem.
Version 2 is a shift styled with 1/4" bias binding around the neckline, armhole, and hem. It also features a ‘weltless’ pocket, a design that creates the look of a single welt pocket with a fraction of the effort and only one pattern piece.
Both shirt and shift feature comfortable and easy to fit kimono sleeves. They include a back pleat that adds ease and volume for a relaxed fit, while french darts create a barely-tailored silouette in front. The back pleat can be embroidered with a variety of cabin designs provided in the pattern or your own design, or left unadorned.
Two seam finish options are also given for the pattern and include instructions for creating these finishes. The pattern features alteration instructions for different sizes at Bust-Waist-Hip, Shorten and Lengthen, and Full Bust Adjustments.
For sizing please see pattern back picture.
