WrapOver Yoke Shirt...take 2

 
This variation of my Wrap-Over Angled Yoke Shirt was cut and sewn in a more casual way than the first. It is less fitted and its slightly rumpled look is intentional.  This shirt features angled cuffs, and a band collar that folds and buttons down on the left side.

SEWING NOTES--  Interfaced with Pro-Woven Shirt Crisp in the new Slate Gray color, from www.FashionSewingSupply.com .  Fabric is an incredibly soft pinpoint cotton shirting that is almost denim-like in appearance but far more luxurious. Click Here to see the fabric details at GorgeousFabrics.com  FYI...the only reason I am giving my source for this amazing cotton fabric is because I have already purchased several yards in both colors :)  I have no affiliation with Gorgeous Fabrics..I just buy a lot of fabric there ;)

So...which of the Wrap-Over Angle Yoke shirts do you like more...this very casual one, or the more fitted version in checked fabric with piping I posted last week (see below)?

I really like the one from last week. Now...if only I could make two shirts that look so perfect in such a quick time I could try different styles like you do.

This is really stylish Pam - it makes me wonder how it would look in a knit.

Thanks, Sewing Princess...I think I like the first one the best too...and with the piping it was really fun to sew! But sewing with that luscious blue denim-like shirting was a dream...so soft! I am going to make myself a both long sleeve and short-sleeve shirt for myself from that fabric ASAP.

And making shirts is my profession (well 1/2 of it...the other 1/2 is making interfacing;)...so after almost 30 years of professional shirt-making...it *usually* doesn't take me very long :)

Hi Karen, glad you like it! Yes a knit would work for this style...but I would probably skip the separate "shirt yoke", and draft the back so that it extends over the natural shoulder to the front in an angle. In fact, thanks for the great idea! I think I'll draft a knit top for myself and design it that way :)

I really like Take 2 although they are both unique and beautiful shirts. Thanks for the inspiration!
