Make by TFS — Check Cotton Bloom Shirt
Jun 28 2022

Hooray! Our popular Make by TFS Bloom Shirt + Dress pattern is now available in paper format. To celebrate, we made up a new version in one of our recent cotton arrivals. A cotton Bloom is a wardrobe classic, easy to layer up over merino in cooler months, or pair with a tank for breezy sun protection in the heat! Check out photos of this must-make pattern below, kindly modelled by Charlotte from our Online Store team.

Make by TFS Bloom Shirt + Seersucker Check Cotton - Dijon

Our Bloom Shirt features a casual a-line shape with a subtle swing through the body, a back yoke, front button placket and patch pocket, collar and stand, and long sleeves with button cuffs and placket. We made up a size 12 shirt for Charlotte, with no modifications, and this took 2.2m of our Seersucker Check Cotton - Dijon. This is a narrow fabric at 107cm wide, and we matched our checks, so the overall yield was slightly more than the recommended 2.1m (115cm wide fabrics). Bloom comes with three collar options and we're loving the vintage vibes that the half penny collar lends this shirt! For the finishing touches, we used x9 Trocas Shell Buttons 12.7mm in Smoke, available in stores and online.

Our recent shipment of cottons offers the perfect selection of Bloom-worthy fabrics, check out recent arrivals in stores and online here.
