Garden Park Shirt
The colors make this shirt!
First I bought the deep violet shirt which includes other purples and a touch of periwinkle, and got so many compliments! The abstract floral print has beautiful, jewel-like colors. It goes with anything purple, blue-violet or peri in my wardrobe and adds pizzazz to black or navy.
Fit is just a bit smaller than I'm used to, but is still wearable, fitting more like my usual 16P size in the Foxcroft "fitted" 3/4 sleeve blouses than the more ample classic long-sleeve Foxcroft 16P (my longtime ideal point of reference for sizing). I'm 5'1" and the cuffed sleeves are just right -- no extra sleeve length to spare. Looks nice with cuffs flipped back, too.
The all-cotton fabric looks best with a bit of touch up ironing to smooth the collar and front placket.
When the sale price was offered, I snapped up the Alpine Teal in a flash. Once again, immediate compliments. Colors are four shades of blue greens and teal with a touch of avocado. These are beauties!
