NEW SHIRTS FOR NEW DAYS Try one of these patterns (or both) to make venturing out even more of an event.

This is the Anything But Ordinary top made a bit bigger, cause who doesn't play around with her patterns? It's Louise's Go-To top based on Anything But Ordinary. I gave you the instructions in a recent blog post.

View A of Point of View. The stripes are aligned with the diagonal edge of the right front. This view uses the short sleeves. Both views have a double yoke, but the collars are different.
I love this cotton one with white pants. So fresh for summer. Below, you can see that we stacked buttons for more fun.
