Aster Shirt Pattern
The Aster Shirt by Colette Patterns is a modern twist on the classic button-up blouse. With three different sleeves and two bodice options, you can mix and match features to create your ideal shirt.
Version 1 has short, cuffed sleeves for a casual look, while version 2 combines long sleeves and pleated bodice for a professional appearance. The delicate flutter sleeves in version 3 provide a feminine, short-sleeved option.
