One Pattern, Options Galore!

Bloom has two views and multiple collar options, providing versatility for year-round wardrobe pairing! The Dress view features side seam pockets and a deep hem. There are three collar options, which can be matched to both the shirt and dress views. Collar option 1 is a classic pointed collar and stand. Collar option 2 is a half penny collar and stand. Collar option 3 is an exaggerated box pleated collar with a narrow stand. The pattern also offers a sleeve length shortening indication line, if you wish to customise for each season!

Sizing + Fit

The Bloom Shirt is an oversized fit, with a generous amount of swing through the body and approximately 30cm ease through the bust. If you would prefer a closer fit, we recommend you choose a size down. We recommend referring to both the garment measurements and the body measurements when selecting a size, regardless of what size you wear in ready-to-wear clothing.

Our patterns are drafted for a height of 172cm (5'7"). You may wish to lengthen or shorten the body and sleeve hem depending on your height and personal preference and change the location of the pockets. If you wish to adjust the fit through the bust, we suggest using the bust apex points provided on the patterns.
