Gemini shirt

$14.00

Gemini is that flowy, romantic chic shirt that will give an instant update to any casual or business look. Throw it on a pair of jeans or tuck it into a skirt, make it into a breezy crinkled cotton or into a luxurious silk crepe to create different looks that will take you from day to night. Or make it in a silk lamé for a special occasion… I think this will be my next choice, watch my Instagram!

Fabric choice/yardage

All thin and flowy fabrics: silk, viscose, polyester, tencel, cupro… in crepe, satin, twill… Or even a very fine cotton. Be careful to choose a thin fabric, otherwise the frilled collar will be too bulky as you will have to sew through several thicknesses. With 60inch wide fabrics (152cm), you will need 1.75 yard (1.6 meters) for the long sleeved version. With 44inch (111cm) wide fabrics, you will need 2.5 yards (2.3 meters) for the long sleeved version.

You will need

12 small buttons (max 12mm) for long sleeved version, 10 buttons for short sleeved version, interfacing that fits your fabric type (for button tab and also for piece 5, long sleeved version only. Depending on your fabric you may also need to interface piece 6 or at least the buttonhole area). Be careful to choose an interfacing that is neither too thick nor too rigid for your fabric: it makes all the difference for a professional finish. Woven interfacing is always better.
