McCall's 7590, AKA the Cocoa Beach Shirt
From 1964 comes the Cocoa Beach Shirt! Yay!
This shirt was so much fun to make and I'm totally in love with its retro vibe. The fabric is a cotton voile from Denver Fabrics and the print seems made for this style.
Of course the look is never complete without the pipe!
The back view. Pleats extend from the yoke to the hem. There is a button detail at the hem which adds interest.
The pattern matched up nicely at the front. I love when that happens!
Here's a close up of the pick stitch detailing on the collar and shirt front. I know that this is going to be my "go to" shirt for the summer. I'm looking forward to making 2 or 3 more!
