Superbly Summer Sahara Shirt

When stylish over-sized shirts are hard to come by, the simple yet stunning Sahara shirt is undoubtedly the only cover-up you'll ever need. Whether you are lounging by the pool or setting off on safari, the drop shoulder design teamed with open-tab cuffs and a belted waist will suit absolutely any holiday destination. To create a classic look for a sultrier day out or more seductive evening occasion, using a luxury fabric such as satin or silk will really add a touch of elegance - we used light weight gauzy linen for the sample above.

CREATIVE TIPS:

The Sahara Shirt sewing pattern has been created to be one of the easiest pieces in our summer collection. Deceptively constructed to look complicated, it's the perfect piece for novice sewers who want to really showcase their skills. Using more stable material such as cotton poplin or linen will make this pattern even easier to create, but more experienced sewers can change it up by using delicate silk, habotai and sand washed satin.
