The Alnus

This awesome big shirt has been cloned from a vintage shirt of a prominent mid-Century swimwear company. It was a favourite of mine (and my daughter's apparently, based on the number of times it disappeared from the closet) for wearing at the cottage. Its very loose fit and natural fibre make it so comfortable.

Some improvements were made over the original: sleeve and bottom hems are doubled rather than serged, turned and stitched. All seams have been serged and edge-stitched for durability. And the breast pocket matches the print on the left front.

Makes a great cover-up at the beach over your bathing suit. Wear it layered with a tank top. Looks great with jeggings, leggings, skinny jeans and capris.
