The Croatian Shirt is a traditional top worn by peasants, farmers, and shepherds in the Pannonian Basin of old Yugoslavia. Originally made from homespun linen, it is quite elegant in cotton, silk, and sheers. Soft pleats at the shoulders, with a tucked front yoke. Our pattern also includes historical information and instructions for decorative pleats on the yoke.
Suggested fabrics: Shirting-weight fabrics such as cotton, blends, broadcloth, linen, chambray, muslin, gingham, or silk.
PLEASE NOTE: These suggested fabrics are based on fabrics that are in stock at the time the blog post is written, and may go out of stock from store at some point. If link is invalid for specific product, look for a similar fabric you can substitute.
I also love this beautiful indigo dyed cotton/hemp from Blackbird Fabrics! It would make a gorgeous blouse.
