Batik Bermuda Shirt

I have a client who spends his time sailing from one Caribbean Island to another. What a nice life, hmm? This very nice "gentleman sailor" contacts me from time to time for a new shirt or two. His recent request was for a casual shirt in "some sort of dark tone print."

How lucky for both of us that I had the perfect cotton batik among my shirt fabrics!


Mens Batik Shirt

This shirt is of my own design, that I call "The Bermuda Shirt". It is a classic "camp shirt" silhouette, with some very subtle shaping of the side seams and a collar that curves, rather than laying flat against the shoulder. The side shaping avoids an overly baggy look, while still providing a loose comfortable fit.
The curved collar elevates this shirt from Off-The-Rack to Just Right...for a night at the nearest island's hottest Tiki Bar :)

"Pool Boy? I'd like a margarita, please....and don't forget the little umbrella ! "



SEWING NOTES: Collar and Facings interfaced with
PRO-WEFT FUSIBLE INTERFACING, from ~Fashion Sewing Supply~

Oooo, I love that fabric. That shirt is perfect for hanging out at Karel's bar in Bonaire or at Marigot Bay. Mmmmm, I miss the Caribbean!

mmmmmm I do too...miss the warm clear beautiful Caribbean waters. I haven't been able to travel for years! But why am I complaining, LOL...Niagara Falls is 45 minutes to the North, Lake Erie is 45 minutes to the West, and lake Ontario is one hour to the East...Woo-Hoo! LOL

As usual, a beautifully made shirt. I love that you are adding what you interfaced with, especially since I have all your interfacings.

The fabric is fantastic! Side seam shaping for a casual shirt is a nice touch.
