I am Irma, a dress and I can also be made as a shirt. I have a concealed button placket, my front is shorter than my back and on the back I have a back yoke with a large box pleat. I have a shirt collar and you can choose between classic shirt sleeves or bishop sleeves maintained by a cuff.
I AM Patterns are designed to be traced off. The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on paper. This means that you will be able to make multiple sizes of the garment and adjust the pattern as you trace it if necessary. For this you could use tracing paper, baking parchment, thin wrapping paper; or we can supply you with some spot and cross pattern paper.
The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.
